So, how do you mamas define "single parent"?
Is it strictly based on marital/coupled status, or do you still consider yourself a single parent if you have to deal with an ex with regard to parenting? If not, when do you consider yourself to be no longer single? When you're dating or moved in together, or actually married (or partnered with a ceremony)? Or is it one of those things where once you're a single parent, you're always a single parent? And if your partner is just a workaholic and you feel like a single parent, does that count too?
I'm just curious as to whether or not there is a group consensus here on the definition of a single-parent, or if it's a case of "you are when you say you are". Anyone want to share their thoughts on the matter?
