A Father Without a Family: Six Degree’s of Separation
To provide a small snapshot into the lives of some single mums, I have asked six of my female friends to participate in a survey. The surveys were broken down into six parts titled,
- Emotional Wellbeing
- Having a Child
- Social Stigma
- The Future
The aim was to build a picture of how single mums perceive what I consider are some of the most important parts of our lives as parents. This BLOG has in general, been about me, and how I have dealt with the loss of my marriage. Whilst I have covered other more general topics, I wanted to provide some balance and try to understand how women feel, act, fear, and celebrate what is a very challenging time when you separate. I also hope it might provide some comfort for other women who may be going through a separation right now. This may also help men who are struggling to understand what their partner or ex-partner is going through.
