(National Women's Law Center, Poverty & Income Among Women & Families, 2000-2013) The topic is less contentious in Western European countries where all families enjoy more robust state-sponsored social benefits.
Single parenthood has been common historically due to parental mortality rate (due to disease, wars and maternal mortality).
And that co-parenting space is often where single co-parenting dads focus the bulk of their energies.
They are fiercely committed to their little ones saying, by action and by word, “you are loved.”I was once one of them. What I was seeking (and found) in a spouse was informed by what I experienced in part, in the co-parenting world.
Historically, the death of a partner was a major cause of single parenting.
Single parenting can also result from the breakup or divorce of coupled parents who leave and choose to not co-parent, thus leaving one parent to raise and support the child on their own.
These dads are focused on regularly caring for their kids in partnership with their former spouses.
Usually this means all the mechanics of raising a little one duplicated in a two separate homes.
Single-parent adoption or fostering is also sometimes an option for single adults who want to raise a family.
To go yet another step forward and even consider a new relationship seems like a risk too great and too self absorbed to indulge in.
