I am a single parent of a teenage daughter. I have been divorced since 2019 and single since 2017. I restarted my career at the age of 40 when I separated. I moved with my 10 year old kiddo to a new city with new lifestyle. Life was tough but with proper support and determination, I could turn around my life. I am still work in progress and healing from what I went through. So, I want to open this forum for all single women who need support, love and a space of non-judgmental sharing. Let us build a community of understanding and togetherness. YOU ARE NOT ALONE ANYMORE(YANAA) Cheers, Sandhyaa S Pillai

It must be a tough time for you. It is not easy to watch our own children go through self- sabotage. I am authorised to talk about addiction. pls consult a therapist, counsellor or de-addiction expert to help your son. these services are not biased for single parents. the rootcause could be different but they treat us all equally.

I am in a cohabitation relationship, but I am also feeling scared about how my parents will react after knowing it. How accepted is cohabitation?
Not always! Living together can be a great way to see if your relationship can handle dirty dishes and all that stuff. But remember, communication is key! Talk things out before moving in to avoid any roommate drama.
It is Super common these days. Marriage isn't the only path anymore. Lots of couples choose to live up before tying the knot, or even ditch marriage altogether. It's all about what works for you!

My parents are looking for matches for me and I am ok with it. however I think a dating period is necessary to understand each other. How long should this period be?
It depends on your flow and compatibility in a relationship. There's no fixed time but a few months probably mught be good to get used to each other's compatibility

I really doubt they'll agree to wait for long so maybe 7-8 months is reasonable

my neighbours daughter got caught in a live in relationship and her mother has been crying like someone died... is it wrong to be in a live in?
Nope, not at all. It's infact a good way to test compatibility in a relationship. However due to societal pressure people often feel ashamed or embarrassed of it, at times they don't even take the decision to do it.
Nope! It's a personal choice. Some folks like to test the waters before marriage, others prefer to jump straight in.

Hi! I am noticing that lots of youngsters talk about the pros and cons of cohabitation, and I am curious to know: does cohabitation lead to better marriages?

no but it gives you an idea of what you are getting into
There's no guarantee that cohabitation will lead to a successful marriage or a relationship.

Why is living together before marriage considered a sin? I've been thinking about moving in with my boyfriend to see how well we match in daily life, but my parents are very traditional and believe it's wrong. They say that living together before marriage goes against our religious values and sets a bad example. I'm torn between respecting their beliefs and wanting to take this step in my relationship. Can anyone explain why living together before marriage is seen as sinful in some cultures?
Not in most religions these days. It's more about following your own beliefs and what feels right for you.
Anonymous3d
I feel because of old beliefs and #outdatedbeliefs , pointless thinking

What are the two benefits of living together? (so i can convince my parents for this)
Increases trust and understanding, makes bond stronger, reduced chances of divorce or incompatibility,
Anonymous3d
Hey Anonymous. It also gives you a chance to share responsibilities and expenses. Plus, it can be a great way to strengthen the bond between both partners. 😊👫

I am a mother and an educator in charter schools and ABC Youth Foundation. I host several podcast it's a huge passion of mine and I also produce I strongly feel that empathy is the glue of humanity and without it what do we have for understanding one another and being kind toward one another is what keeps Us human it's what makes it work and without it what can possibly get better you must hold on to that and remember and show it where it's needed so that people can know what it is and be able to show that same to others connecting and growing with others is within the foundations of empathy that's how the world gets better so we can understand we don't have to directly know one another we must be that change and it starts with us, we must be the change we want to see!more
