    I love it when single mothers say that they do not need a father to raise a child right. Hilarious!

    I agree, a lack of a father figure is the main reason things like this happen, women tend to look at men as a paycheck, the wider the wallet, the wider the hips.

    From my experience, most spouses leave the other due to controllable issues like weight

    From my experience, most spouses leave the other due to controllable issues like weight and other factors related to that.

    not to mention the single mothers who plague our nation and cause these children to run rampant on the streets.

    Be firm, only have children with your spouse and don't try to be a friend.

    uhhh... hello not all single mothers let their children to run rampant. Bad children has nothing to do with single or divorced parents but rather how that parent(s) disipline their child.

    Perhaps you havent noticed yet but the divorce rate is over 50%, therefore not all single parents are done so out of wedlock. I fully intended to be married for ever and raise my children with my SPOUSE but he had other plans. I hope your spouse doesnt ever have other plans for you!!!lol

    Too many people raise their children as a friend instead of a true parental role... not to mention the single mothers who plague our nation and cause these children to run rampant on the streets.

    Be firm, only have children with your spouse and don't try to be a friend.
