Of course there are men out there who would marry a woman with children. It happens all the time! Some men, in fact, will even go the extra mile and legally adopt the children in an effort to make them feel as though they are one-hundred percent a part of the new family. So, yes, if you are worried that you aren’t ever going to find a man who will want to marry you because you are a single woman with children, “Stop worrying about it!”
Personally, I made the choice a long time ago not to have children of my own. This is because the risk factor of passing my genetically inherited eye condition on to them, regardless of the woman I conceived them with, was so high.
It’s not that I don’t like kids. Admittedly; I never saw myself as the fathering type when in my teens and throughout my twenties. So, all in all, having a Vasectomy done seemed a perfectly intelligent choice for me. With all the fatherless kids in the world today, “I don’t regret having it done!”
Yes! I have dated women with children in the past and can honestly say that the experiences really never did much for me, as far as arousing any parental instincts or desires. Why? Well, let’s just say that I feel very strongly that children (under the age of eighteen) should respect their parents and not treat them like garbage, and leave it at that.
I find it frustrating, too, that single women will make excuses for their children’s piss pore behavior, while complaining about it themselves. In a heartbeat; I’ve even seen a mom or two suddenly turn around and use their supposed problem child as an excuse for getting out of doing things they didn’t want to do. “Yes,” some mom’s will even use their child as an excuse to get out of accepting things like job promotions, which could improve their financial situation; enabling them to better take care of themselves and their children.
So, for me, if I were to ever even think about dating a woman with kids again, I certainly would want to see how she interacted with her children before making a determination as to whether or not I’d even want to seriously pursue a long term relationship with her. Not because I dislike children. It’s because I dislike women who fail to step up to the plate as a parent, using their children as a crutch when it suits them. A mom who regularly claims victimization at the hands of her own child is quite a downer to be around.
One thing I’ve noticed over the years is that confident single women generally have better behaved kids. True! There are kids that are simply born hell raisers but confident moms are able to keep a handle on situations as they arise, rather than throwing their hands in the air and giving up or in, as the case may be.
From where I sit; a woman who has reasonably well behaved children has more respect for herself because she recognizes that their respect for her is based on the example she sets for them. I could go on and on here but I think you get the idea.
Would I marry a woman with children? Yes! Self-confident women with children are always welcome here. Cheers!
