Avoid dating men with kids
This reason alone should eliminate single mothers from your consideration.4) You WILL have to pay more than if you date a childless woman.
First it will start off with having to pay for babysitters, and then she will want to have “dates” on which the child(ren) will come along.
Depending on what is happening with the child’s biological father, how much time the child spends around you, paying for the child, and buying gifts for the child (think birthdays, Christmas, etc.), you can end up getting tagged for child support.
All it takes is some judge or government official picking YOU to pay for the child’s needs rather than taxpayers.
Conversely, here are the downsides of dating a single mother, in no particular order:1) The kid(s) will always come first for her, and that’s the way it should be.
A woman without a child has much more freedom to be available for you.
Some do, and men should protect themselves.*Women are “single mothers” for different reasons.
While the term should be reserved for never-married mothers, it can also refer to divorced mothers and widowed mothers.
Second marriages have a higher failure rate than first marriage.
That child does not need to compete with you, and you don’t need to compete with that child.
Even if you were to marry her, the child(ren) will always come first, whereas being with a childless woman means YOU come first. So you’d bond with her children and then you (and the children) would have to endure the pain of losing or restricting that bond with each other.
Finally, if you marry her, you will DEFINITELY be paying more.5) A woman who has given birth can’t ever have a body close to what she had before carrying a child.
This is not saying that having a child isn’t worth it, but this is not about YOU having a child. Her body was changed by something that is of no benefit to you.6) You don’t want to be a father.
