    I was reading a bunch of posts concerning social constructs and their influences over dating, et al, and I have one of my own questions...

    As a single mother who is planning on moving to the CR, how are single mothers perceived and subsequently treated by society as a whole?

    In 1995, I was an exchange student who lived with a single mother household in Prague, and could not really detect any differences between our different cultures in that regard. To come to think of it, I live my life very similar to how Ivana, my host mother, lived hers while I was there. However, she was divorced with two you think it would be different if a single mother was never married?

    Hi Leah,

    I'd say this is more a question of a personal attitude; that is you may encounter people who somehow discriminate single moms. I don't think that the Czech society has a specific approach towards single mothers as a whole though...

    There's no longer a stigma attached to unwed mothers. You may experience the same difficulties divorced women with kids do but apart from that I don't see any problem.
