What does the rise of single mom dating mean in today's society? Well, it probably means that single parents are feeling more comfortable getting out in the dating world, that's all.

Premarital sex is now widely accepted. Just take a look at the royal couple about to be married. They have been living together for years and have set a new standard in the royal court.
