i still would much rather prefer being a single mama...but i'm trying to feel this out.
What kind of guy do you think he is? If you left him would he fight for visitation/custody? if he would I would say that either way you see the relationship going getting on the same page about parenting philosophies will help in the long run because what I know from my situation is that it is hard to parent with someone who feels philosophically different from you and particularly hard to parent with someone who you are philosophcally different from, don't get along, and live in different houses. Even if you are a single mama if he fights for visitation you still have to parent with him so better you are on the same page, espcially if you plan to do extended breastfeeding because at one year he could get overnights and if you live in different states he could get overnights earlier than that in some states.
