Last week I heard three heartbreaking stories from single mothers.
Story #1 – Young Lady
“When we were 17 my boyfriend told me that he wanted me to have his baby. He said that he loved me and we would always be together. My boyfriend was kind of rough around the edges and he said that a new baby boy would represent a fresh new start for him. He would be pure and everything that was wrong in his life, he would make right in his son’s life. I really believed him. We had our baby this past April. In July he broke up with me. When he left for college last week, he said that he did not want to have anything to do with me or our baby.”
Story #2 – Single Sistah
“After three years of dating we moved in together and got engaged. We are both 35+ and having kids was important to us so we started trying. I have to admit, it was my idea about getting pregnant as soon as possible. But the only reason that I was comfortable with my decision was because he also wanted kids and didn’t have any. Well as soon as I got pregnant we started having problems. He ended up moving out. He ended up breaking off our engagement. He didn’t even come to the hospital when I gave birth to his daughter. He didn’t answer the phone because we weren’t on speaking terms. In the past three years he has seen his daughter maybe 7 times. He just got married a couple months back. I saw him at the mall with his 1-year old daughter and with his new wife and I nearly died! I am 40 years old trying to figure out how to START dating with a kid.”
Story #3 – Grown Woman
“Shortly after we got married, my husband fathered a child with his ex-girlfriend. I stood by his side. He said that it would never happen again. Little did I know, he had already fathered a second child with a co-worker. Within the first year of our marriage he brought two children outside of our marriage into the world. On our first anniversary he convinced me to stay. Said it was a bad year. He said it could never be worse than that right? All downhill now right?
This year is worst than last year. I am pregnant and he has moved in with one of those damn baby mommas!!!”
Dating and relationships are tough these days. Today’s woman has got to be more careful. It is important that today’s woman understand that her body is her temple. I am concerned that for some reason a number of women are not fully grasping the fact that if you let some guy COME IN your temple with his soldiers then he becomes ruler of your temple. Today’s man is not making himself responsible for today’s woman. Every single day I get emails from women all across the country who have been wronged by a man. That’s not surprising right? It’s disappointing but not surprising. What may surprise you is that in nearly 75% of the cases that I learn of, if not more, the man will provide the woman with clear signs that he is either not ready for a serious relationship or that he is emotionally unstable, but the woman stays with the man all the way until the end.
