As a single mother, I pride myself on being completely financially independant...and also of being capable of providing quality parental care at all times.
If I were approached by someone who came to the table with some $$$ and an attitude of "let me help you take care of the kids"....I'd be pretty insulted, truth be told.
And single parents are completely capable of choosing non-monogamy...rather than it being something to be "overlooked"...
We're not sad sacks waiting at home for knights in shining armour to come save us - We're just as likely to be business women/men with full, rich, happy and complex lives...
Deep breathing required here !
That's a big generalisation that many single mothers and single parents would find insulting.
