Aided by earlier research and literature on the subject we finalize our study. We have from our studies seen that it is not the concept single mother which in itself is associated with social issues. There are many other factors which weigh in for it to become a social issue. To carry the responsibility on your own and shortage of time in combination with often a poor financial situation is what often makes their entire situation perceived as difficult. (Less)
