    I just looked at this for the first time in ages and I laughed so much. The rather odd rule I have had repeatedly pointed out, by one person in particular, recently is along these lines:

    - Your life cannot possibly be okay, or even bearable. You MUST be living in mountains of regret over having your children and in constant envy of childless people and married parents; as a single mum, obviously you realise the irrepairable mistakes you made in the past and that your transition to single parenthood has ruined your life. You are well aware that you will never be able to do the things you wanted, and you pine every day for the life you could have had. Of course, any love or sense of purpose that raising children provides to other people does not apply to you, as the mere fact of being single cancels it all out.

    Ie., as a single mum you cannot possibly be happy or truly glad that you had babies at all, like partnered people are expected to be- because without a man, it means nothing.

    Of course, the answer is simple- find a new husband/partner ASAP and you will be fulfilled as a woman and a mother!


    I don't get it either.

    it's unbelievable, isn't it? I get the opposite - "oh well aren't you lucky at least you have your DD!"

    At LEAST?? Isn't she enough? Oh yes that's right I must be miserable, lonely and unfulfilled without a man in my life to treat me like cr@p... Lol

    So funny, and sadly true.

    The real truth is, single mums rule the world!

    I became separated from my husband 5 months ago our baby was 7 months at the time, his choice. First child support payment I joined the gym (have now lost all baby weight) and got botox for my crows feet (something i never imagined on doing) but hey thanks hunny total jerk ! bub dosnt do without at all she's got beautiful clothes, a savings account, lots of love from my family and cousins her age, so she dosnt go without a thing.
