    Single Mothers Rule The World

    in Entertainment

    Once largely limited to poor women and minorities, single motherhood is now becoming the new “norm”.

    This prevalence is due in part to the growing trend of children born outside marriage — a societal trend that was virtually unheard of decades ago.

    About 4 out 10 children were born to unwed mothers. Nearly two-thirds are born to mothers under the age of 30.

    Of all single-parent families in the U.S., single mothers make up the majority. We will go over this plus a big announcement  give a way from Avenue 4311 Store for singles mothers

    Should single mothers celebrate Father's Day

    in Parents

    I have noticed this time of year a lot of people tell mothers (single mothers) Happy Father's Day.  Tonight we are asking how does this make men that are actually father's feel? Is it acceptable for a woman that's parenting alone, to consider herself mother and father?  Do single father's have the same right? Do single fathers even want that right? What are your thoughts?  Should single mothers celebrate Father's Day? Join us tonight for iCandi After Dark.  9:30 pm

    "Relationship Tuesday" Why are There So Many Single Black Mothers in America?

    in Family

    Most of us have seen the scenario more times than we can count:  A woman in the grocery store with two kids in the basket, with no wedding band and no man in sight  She might even be pregnant at the time, leading you to wonder how she is going to provide for those kids by herself.

    In the black community, the single parent issue has taken our community by storm.  Over 70% of all African American children come from single parent households, and many children suffer as a result.  Is this a problem?  If it is, what can be done to resolve it?

    We asked members of the Your Black World blogging team to chime in, their reactions are below.  You can give your take on the issue in the comments section as well:

    My observation has been that our generation does not seem to value commitment the way that prior generations did. We seem to think in terms of our individual well-being rather than keeping the family unit together. I believe that if we restored a sense of value to family and the well-being of our children, we would start to see less children grow up in single parent homes.

    Relationships have ceased to be relationships. They are mere exchanges. Men and women are now in it for what they can get out of it. For some women, that’s become as simple as extra money needed for stability. For some men, that’s as simple as having one’s sexual needs satisfied. That’s good Wild Kingdom stuff, but it in no way leads to a lasting and loving relationship. There is no tie that binds, just “What can you do for me?” and “What have you done for me, lately?”So, of course, both parties eventually go their own way. “On to the next one” inevitable leaves single mothers to go it alone.

    in Moms and Family

    On this Episode we will discuss the struggles and challenges of single mothers. In addition to the promise and encouragment. What use to be rare in the past is the norm now. Is it good bad, what are your thoughts?

     Did you know single mothers are more likely to be poor than married couples. The poverty rate for single-mother families in 2011 was 40.9%, nearly five times more than the rate (8.8%) for married-couple families.

    Poverty rates were about one in two for Black (47.3%), Hispanic (49.1%), White (33.0%), and Asian (26.3%). Among all other ethnic groups, Native American female-headed families with children have the highest poverty rate (53.8%).

    Should Blackmen Marry Single mothers? What is the advantage or disadvantage?

    in Entertainment

    There is a multitude of single black women who are divorced with kids, separated with kids and continue to go through men like a 90% off sale at Macy's.

    Why is it so hard for men to set standards for themselves when it comes to choosing a mate?  Is he molded by society to think he should not have standards

    or is he thinking with the wrong HEAD?

    A womans standard should be to get married first then have children, not have children then look for another man to be Husband and Father. Is that really normal?

    A man should have a standard to say I want to start my own family, not a LAGO family. Should that be his thought?

    What are the real advantages of marrying a single parent from a male perspective or a female perspective?

    What are the real disadvantages of marrying a single parent from a male perspective or a female perspective?

    Are men put at a disadvantage if he marries then have to pay CHILD SUPPORT if it is not his child? 

    Do you think being in someones life as a father figure binds you to take care of the child that is not your biological.

    What are some things men can do to protect themselves from false fatherhood?

    Should you know your blood type and your partners blood type and the babies blood type before you sign the birth certicate.

    Should you make sure the man does not have any other children before you sayy I DO?

    Join me tomorrow at 2pm Central Time and lets find out answers to these questions.

    Single And Waiting

    in Relationships

    It's not easy being single in these times. Especially if you are trying to do it the "Christian way." If you aren't struggling with abstinence, your being told you are "too nice." We live in a society that encourages us to be free-spirited and sexually liberated. Dating is often confusing because people just won't be honest. So, how do you live this single life and be successful at it? Tonight we figure it out!
