I think times have changed now. Earlier when women had problems in their marriage they would not raise their voice or do protest but now in this age every female is self depend and that is the prime reason for so many seperations because now they are more aware and bold enough to put across their say. So that is the reason for so many divorces. Yes single parent has become the order of the day with increasing trend of seperations. When i say that any spouse should never stay in a bad relationship which brings negativity towards relationships among kids , i would also like to say that for the sake of future of kids one should make some adjustments also in marriage, because kids want both the parents, mom as well as dad.

Single parents probably did not choose to be but if a marraige did not work out then they venture into the world with thier kids only. I too will be a single parent soon, though I tried hard to keep the marraige but I feel the kids are not happy because their father is a controlling and constantly bickering about everthing, so I might have to be a single mother and raise the kids on my own.

I was rasied by a single parent, my daughters are both single parents, so it certianly is common in my family. We have all supported each other and things have worke out ok. i'm not saying it's easy, but it certianly is better then staying in a bad marriage or relationship.

I was a single parent for my of my kids childhood. Their father and I were divorced when they were 10 an 8. I don't think it's a great thing to raise children with just one parent, but in some instances it's better than trying to raise them in the household with both parents.

Hi juhi06, That is one of the saddeat things, I feel so very sorry for the children wh only have one parent because their parents couldn' be bothered to us precorusions, it seems that more and more young girls are pushing thir prams and no partner, it is very sad. Tamara

I think it really depends on the couple and why they're seeking a divorce. If one is abusive in any way then yes, I'm all for a divorce but if it's a case of needing to find ones self or fallen out of love with their significant other is just an excuse to get out of the marriage. If there's children involved, the couple should try to work it out for kids need their mother and their father in their lives. Part timers just doesn't cut it. Now in an abusive situations, it's best to get out because it teaches the kids that abuse is NOT ok.
