Mammito was recently interviewed and she said she has no intention of carrying before she’s married and I have to applaud her for that. Of course this nugget of wisdom was lost with all the other hogwash about how old she really is but that is because we usually focus on fluff.
You see, she is no fool. She is aware of just how terrible single motherhood is. And perhaps she learnt this by watching members of her family go through it or perhaps it has been from watching the struggles of her friends or her celebrity peers.
Lets actually dive into why I think Mammito is smarter than a lot of her peers by choosing not to have children before she’s married. Let’s start by looking at what science teaches us:
The statistics she has clearly acquainted herself with about single mother households that are very damning claim that the main issue is the children raised in such households come out with every imaginable disadvantage.
Harbour report about the children of single mother households:
90% of welfare recipients are single mothers
70% of gang members, high school dropouts, teen suicides, teen pregnancies, teenage drug abusers are from single-mother households
63% of national suicides are done by individuals who grew up in single-mother homes
90% or runaway children are from single-mother households are from single mother households
85% of children with behavioural disorders are from single-mother households
80% of rapists motivated by displaced anger grew up in single-mother homes
85% of imprisoned youth grew up in single-mother homes
And we can take a look at some of the celebrity single mothers who have all spoken out to cry about their situation being tough. Mammito has been watching, taking notes and learning.
We have Saumu Mbuvi, a single mother of two by as many men who exemplifies how difficult raising these children and then moving on with your own life would be tough even when money isn’t an issue. That’s why she was crying about not finding love.
The most recent example Mammito can look to is Carol Sonnie. There is a reason she keeps complaining about having to raise her daughter without Mulamwah’s input.
Ultimately, marriage is the best bet anyone can have for raising healthy, balanced children with real advantages at making it in life. And I am glad to see Mammito break the mould.
