The numbers of single mothers keep increasing every single day. This status can either be by choice or some unavoidable circumstances.
However, mothers of this era seem to be comfortable raising their kids as single parents.
These are some of the reasons;
Most of the single mothers tend to be avoiding their responsibilities as wives. In the current society, almost every woman is employed and makes money.
Therefore it seems to be difficult for someone who is under some pay role to act as a housewife. This is because both the husband and wife are working and so the woman expects the husband to share the responsibilities which include house chores and finances. This has hence become hard for such educated women with such expectations to stay in their marriages.
Financial differences. Most educated or rich women are not married as statistics state. In cases where the wife has more money than the husband then there are very low chances of that marriage to work.
This is because the man will feel inferior to his wife. A woman will only respect you as a man if you have more money than her or as a provider to the family.
Many at times they also tend to look at other successful single mothers. When it comes to celebrities especially, most of them are single and successful.
This in mind makes one have that mentality that they can also make it. This comparison has made many women walk out of their marriages.
To others, it comes as a result of role models. They may be looking up to someone they admire in life and go to the extent of copying the entire lifestyle.
Women at times like to have some kind of freedom that they lack in marriages.
When in marriage you are usually under someone who happens to be your husband. He is supposed to approve everything that you do because he is the head of the family.
When single you make rules on your own. You can party any time you want, come to the house at any time, have all sorts of guests without any explanation.
This is one of the major reasons as to why women prefer to be single mothers. They have all the freedom and personal space to make their own decisions.
