I dont understand why anyone would want to become a single parent by choice? Just a question.
Also its very different to become a single parent by choice (planned pregnancy) as compared to an unplanned pregancy.....
I'm not sure I understand the second part of your question, but I'll give it a red hot shot smile
I choose to be a single parent because a termination is not an option for me, I choose to raise this child on my own, because there is no other option for me - the "father" has cut off all contact and wants nothing to do with me or the baby. Do I lay down and cry about it or just get on with giving my children the best possible life I can?
Single mothers can very easily CHOOSE to have a planned or unplanned pregnancy if the father is too lazy to safeguard against a pregnancy. I was on the pill (religiously - and I've been very successful for 10 years), he choose not to use a condom or have a vasectomy (even though he apparently doesn't want anymore children. It can't all be my fault can it?
Sex is the responsibility of both parties. What happens if you don't take responsibility is something you should both have to deal with. I personally don't want his negativity in our lives. You can't force someone to be a father. But I want to be a mother... and I'm making a conscious choice to be responsibility for my actions.
