Single parenting V/S Getting Married

Many single parents face a dilemma whether to get married after divorce or not. Getting married after divorce may have positive as well negative impacts on child’s life. However, single parent may have to face lot of difficulties while upbringing the child. Read on to know more about single parenting and marriage.

If you are single parent, you must be facing lot of difficulty in upbringing your child. It is natural because the proper and all round development of child is possible by the care and love provided by both the parents. When you are a single parent, you have to look after the responsibilities of your child, give him quality time and at the same time you also have to earn for living. All these things result in missing one or the other part of parenting.

Some of the single parent fear the impact of their second marriage on children while others cannot come out of the guilt. However, this is life. We should not judge anyone by presuming circumstances and personality of anyone.

Single Parenting

  • Effects of leaving behind children are seen very devastating sometimes. When you are out at work, you need to leave your child behind either in the care of a nanny or someone else employed. It is possible, especially if your job requires, you might not be able to spend much time with your child and she develops habits and behaviour of the person taking care of her. If this happens, it will be almost impossible for you to overcome these and get her into sophisticated way of living again.
  • If you go through the stories of single parents you will see that most of them are extremely lonely and not capable of providing right parenting care for their children.
  • Parenting itself is hard and if it is after divorce, it becomes all the more difficult and quite challenging also. Childcare is a major issue for a divorce man or a woman.
  • Do not forget that if you have gone through the devastation of separation, your child has also lost his father or mother’s love. He also needs psychological and emotional support. The reaction of every child is different and you will have to deal with the emotional problem also along with other things to look after.

Getting Married after Divorce

  • Getting married after divorce is a good option especially if you find someone who understands you and is ready to accept everything along with you from deep down the heart. After some time passes and you are prepared to get into some relationship, you can keep the windows of your heart open and let the fresh air come in.
  • If you had a bad experience with your previous marriage, this does not mean that you need to isolate yourself from the entire world. A good friendship and support will help you strengthen and develop.
  • You should start dating only when you are ready for a healthy relationship. Do not get along with anyone simply because you want to forget everything that happened with you.

Single Parenting V/S Getting Married after Divorce

Once you have gone through the effects of single parenting and you know the facts about life and getting married, you have to decide for yourself and your children.

Give them some time and let the relationship build up naturally. If this happens, this will be the best thing for the success of your second marriage and relationship.

Single parents work hard to care and provide for their children. they neglect themselves or may feel guilty taking time away from their children. However, it is necessary for parents to take care of themselves physically, emotionally and spiritually. Giving without replenishing will limit a parent’s ability to be their best. Scheduling time for hobbies and enjoyable activities like reading, watching a movie, having coffee with a friend, etc. are ways parents can find personal fulfillment.

single parents may feel guilty or overwhelmed by their parenting duties.Some parents may compensate for the absence of the other parent by being permissive in their parenting style. so in some ways being a single parent is not good for the child as he needs a balanced atmosphere for his development.

it's tough being a single parent. one parent tries to fulfill the roles of both a mother and a father to their child. Single parenting is highly demanding physically, emotionally and financially.
