I'm curious as to the proportion of single/married/divorced/etc mamas here at MDC.

FTR, I'm separated, will be divorced (hopefully) later this year.

ETA: I should have been more clear - I consider same-sex partners who have had a commitment ceremony/wedding to be married even if it's not "legal." Ditto with common-law marriages or partnerships. If you fit these categories, please vote married!

I'm married. Lucky for me, gay marriage is legal in Canada.

uh yeah, I had to pick other because none of the options work for me being that we are a lesbian couple (of almost 15 years) that is unable to marry. We consider ourselves very partnered.

That just is so fricken wrong




I checked, "married first" although as far as I'm concerned, it doesn't really apply as it will also be "married, only"

I am a single mama by choice.

My sons father is my best friend of 17 years, and we were not a couple (never have been) when we decided to have a child together. He is a very involved dad, and lives next door.

I put married, even though we're not legally. We've been cohabitating for years now and it's probably as close as either one of us will get to marriage anytime soon.

I am married for the second time. First time was a starter marriage though so I barely count it.
post #13 of 102
Starter marriage, that's funny.

I put married, first, because though it's technically my second marriage, the first was a marriage of convenience borne of youthful stupidity that we annulled after 3 months.
post #14 of 102
I chose divorced but I also consider my marriage as a "starter" and I don't usually consider it. It was very short :
