My mom was a single parent. I never once met my father. Apparently, he was a lying, cheating, jerk who had multiple wives. So..yeah. >_> Don't mind being raised just by my mom. Made me a very independent woman.
My brother is a single parent, too. He's currently 23, his wife cheated on him and basically said "I don't want it anymore, you take it" and left my nephew with him. My brother is taking care of his two year old, going to college, and work. I'm trying to figure out how in the hell he does it . D:
