Basically, whether you are looking for romance, love, friendship, information, emotional support or just to connect with people you share something in common with, you are in the right place!Single parenthood has been common historically due to parental mortality rate (due to disease, wars and maternal mortality).Historical estimates indicate that in French, English, or Spanish villages in the 17th and 18th centuries at least one-third of children lost one of their parents during childhood; in 19th-century Milan, about half of all children lost at least one parent by age 20; in 19th-century China, almost one-third of boys had lost one parent or both by the age of 15.A single parent is a parent that parents alone without the other parent's support, meaning this particular parent is the only parent to the child, responsible for all financial, material, and emotional needs.It means there is an absence of the other parent as opposed to a co-parent, meaning that the parent is not the only parent regardless of whether or not they are a couple. There is no true definition of what "single parent" means and is more based on opinions.
