Single mothers and single daddies who are not married instead of married instead of married men and women who are married and living in their homes are spreading among middle-aged people in their forties and over.
Alice Somers, who worked in the media in the 1980s, always thought that she would marry in the traditional way and build a home.
But when I was 40 years old, I realized that I had to leave my boyfriend without knowing that I was pregnant and go through all this alone.
She had a past heritage experience, but she gave birth to a son with the help of friends. She named her son Joel and moved to a two - room apartment.
Alice said, "I am delighted that I have a family, and when I see Joel, I get great joy."
When Joel woke up, he did not know why he was crying. He was lonely and hard and could not sleep properly. But as a gossip columnist, she could always stay with Joel during the day because she could work at night.
Joel did not have a male role model while maintaining his relationship with his father after his growth. Joel also had two grandfathers, uncles, cousins, and Alice's boyfriend. Alice also played soccer and other sports with Joel.
Alice said, "I am grateful for being a single mother and having custody of my son. "I was able to live my life in the way I wanted, and I did not follow the rules that other people have made," he said.
Joel, now a 23-year-old adult, is expected to earn a law degree in college.
