Quoting Nicola.:" If that is what they want, then sure. My personal opinion is that no matter how amazing a single mother is, and they are amazing, they still do not replace a father."
Agreed. As a single mother myself, we can't replace a father. We can do our best at making the children feel like they aren't missing out on anything though. Biological fathers have not stuck around in my family for the last 3 generations. My boys will not celebrate father's day until they get a father, which will probably be along time since I will not trust another man around my boys for a very long time.
Quoting Jas ♥:" I've heard more mothers being whiney about gifts than fathers. I've never met a father who gave two shits about a Father's Day gift."
In my house growing up, mothers and fathers day were celebrated equally. In my house, I can't say that one dominates the other but I always feel so bad because since I don't work, I don't have any money to do something special for my DH and I'm the kind of person that feels stupid for asking my DH to give me money to buy his gift. :oops: But on the other hand, we don't usually do anything special for mother's day either because we usually don't have extra money to use besides paying bills. This year, my DH was able to take me out to dinner. So I told him I'd like to take him out to dinner for father's day to his favorite restaurant.
