Default If you want children

I have been on both sides of parenting coin. I had a husband and then I was a single mom. It is hard to be a single mom, but I wouldn't trade in my children for an easier life. I don't think that because you are committed to a lifer that you should miss out on the wonderful experience of being a mom. You should be sure that you can take care of a child by yourself though (monetarily and emotionally). There are other ways to find support that having a man at home. Maybe family or friends? I had a wonderful mother and now I have a sister that like to watch my kids from time to time. Hope this helps. Good luck!
