Commentary: Re-thinking “solo motherhood” – By Akilah Holder

I toyed with the idea of “solo motherhood” some years ago, that is, the idea of choosing to be a single mom. I considered asking a close male friend of mine to father my child, and tell him that he would have no obligation whatsoever to be involved in the child’s life. Well, he’d be involved as much as he wanted to.

I considered this because I have watched female relatives get hurt, friends get hurt, put up with the foolishness of guys I dated, so that I figured it was the best thing for me. And furthermore, I like my personal space, so I knew enough then about relationships to worry that being married would be a bother.
