I consider myself a single mom for simplicity’s sake because I’m not married/with the father of my children however I do have a lot of support from my ex’s family and a few friends.

I know at one point my ex said I wasn’t a single mom; single moms are women who are raising their children completely on their own with absolutely no additional support.

Thoughts?

I am a single mom. Not living with any man, raising 4 kids on my own and even more so because dad isn't in the picture right now. I do receive CS but that is all.

It's a mixed bag. I'm technically single, but I've been with my BF for almost 10 years. I don't really consider myself 'single' in that respect though.

I don't think receiving cs or having a support system disqualifies anyone from being a single mom. A single mom/dad are the parent raising kids without a partner.

I assumed I'm a single mom because I'm divorced. But now that my ex passed away I'm truly alone. It's not like I identify myself as a single parent unless I'm on a dating site.

I'm a single mom. In not with the father of my child. And I'm single. However, if I were to get with someone would that make me not a single mom? I'm not with the father of my child but if I remarry would that disqualify me as a single mom?

I do get child support and he does take his child on his court appointed time

Yes, if you remarry you are not longer a SINGLE mom.

Not married or living with so. Custody, visitation, and finances don't matter to me.

I am definitely a single mom. My husband passed away in 2014. So I've been raising our youngest on my own since then.
The oranges of the island are like blazing fire
Amongst the emerald boughs
And the lemons are like the paleness of a lover
Who has spent the night crying.
