What does the term single mom mean?

Does that mean she has a kid and isn't married and doesn't have a boyfriend either? I hear this all the time and it always seems like the girl or woman always has a guy of some sort around, yet they call themselves single.

  • She's a mother who is single. It's simple, when a woman says she's a single mother its either one of the few: She's never married but had a child with an ex boyfriend (no that does not mean they broke up and decided to make babies) and has custody over their child. thats 1). 2) She was married, they had kids, is currently divorced, has custody of the child (ren) and raises them alone. So yes you have the right idea, BUT DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED BY THE CHILD'S FATHER. That man will most likely be involved with these women because of the child. Otherwise you have nothing to be confused about, you're all good

  • When the mother has a child, and isn't in a relationship or marriage with the father of the child.

    Hence the child's household only has the mother in the household, and the father is not in the household.

  • I would think it was just a woman who has a child and is raising that child outside of a relationship?

  • A single mom is a mother who is taking care of the child without a father figure. If she gets a boyfriend, he assumes the role of the father and then she's no longer a single mother.
