5 reasons why single mothers make the best wives

03 June 2016, 08:40 Philomenah Chebet

Single mothers are frowned upon in most African societies. But unknown to many people, they make the best wives.

Below are the reasons why you should give a single mother a chance;

1. She is adaptable. She knows that life doesn’t always go as planned and has learned how to make the best of it after having a tough experience.
2. She knows what to do with money. A successful woman with no child tends to make money and spend it pampering herself and her ventures only. But a single mother is more financially prudent with money, because a child/children depend on her. Her priorities tend to be better placed.

3. She has a bigger vision. A successful woman without children tends to have a vision restricted to her self but a single mother must have a vision greater than hers. She sees way ahead in matters beyond her. She plans for the children's future and yours if you marry her.
4. She knows what kind of man she wants for herself. Because she already has a running family awaiting a father and husband, she knows the qualities she wants in a man and is more specific. She does not waste her time if she isn't interested in you. If she invests time, love and effort in you if she feels you deserve her.
5. Her love is tried and tested. If she passes the test of being a loving single mother, she'll definitely make a loving wife and lover to you. She knows how to care and provide for her children and will definitely continue doing so if you join her. You will never go wrong with her.
