I am dating my mother
Depression, suicide, drug abuse, jail and psychiatric medications are all more common in populations of children raised by single mothers. journalid=37&articleid=107§ionid=692 Ladies, this is why abortion exists!
Children of single mothers do poorly on every imaginable scale: they have more emotional problems, experience more stress, are more likely to grow up poor, they have lower educational achievements and experience way more behavioral problems than children who grow up with married parents.
There are some great online support/friendship groups for adult survivors of abuse...which I have posted through for you.don't have to know anything you don't want them to know.you can still get out what you want to say.
It will be very healing for you.. do hope this has been of help Pamela please accept my response as it also helps to keep this service going for you and others in the future...
Since then she has grown about 1/4 of an inch and picked up 4 lbs. I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
Kids can be great bonuses to meeting someone new and they can also be nightmares just as easily.
When a man gets older he realizes that the chance of meeting a childless woman thins dramatically and the question of “how” may come to his mind in dealing with a child that isn’t his.
I was abused myself as a child and sometimes I am not sure what to think, and have chosen not to disclose this to my friends. Hi Pamela, thank you so much for your reply and I feel very honored that you have shared with me of your traumatic childhood experience..
Updated to add: The use of the term ‘single mother’ is not exactly accurate. If you screw up and get pregnant, don’t screw up even more and bring an innocent child along with you! Divorced moms who escaped abusive marriages with drug/sex/gambling/whatever addicts should not get a free pass from you, either.
If you are a mother and you are collecting child support, you are not a single mother. The rest of us who have to LIVE with your fucked up, emotionally scarred children will PAY you to have a fucking abortion. Second, single mothers are clearly really, really shitty at making life decisions. You both put each other’s happiness above your own. Now divorced mothers, who are a breed of single mothers, MIGHT be a little different, but whenever you approach one, sing this little song in your head: it takes two to tango. Even if it’s TRUE that the husband was a colossal fuck-up, you need to ask yourself what kind of imperceptive moron couldn’t spot that?
I am embarassed and angered by his behaviour, but at the same time I enjoy his company very much.
I have a 12 year old son and wonder if this ever came to light what would happen to him with my ex husband.
By admitting this and talking about it with you ...seems to suggest to me that he is no longer in denial and is taking full responsibility for his actions hence might well wish to seek help for it.. At the same time you have the wisdom within to make the right decision with regards ***** ***** relationship with him...( a gut feeling..) go with what your instincts are telling you and trust yourself..usually right after weighing everything up that you know about him...
