That really depends. The upside to being alone with a child is to be able to make all decitions by oneself - and get all the glory! The problems can arise if you depend in part on somebody, and they do not do their bit, or there are misunderstandings. If he lives close by it may work out all fine as there is less practical conderns connected to travel etc.
I really only know one couple who did it like this and they ended up getting married! and now had another child.
