Single mothers do a great job of raising their children but I just don’t by your is perception that they are better family units.

My husband has two kids and barely sees the kids since they live far away. Now granted them being together would mean I wasn’t with him, I don’t see them being separate as being the best environment for their kids. I don’t think we should glorify the separation of family units.

Only when a cohabitation has conflict is a single parent home better according to recent studies. There is nothing wrong with having a kid on your own but I think it’s incorrect to say that women are better off alone or that only men benefit from monogamy.
