Well, firstly, as you will note, that is why I used question marks in my first two sentences, as I was questioning why he used that particular turn of phrase. But, secondly, the phrase, "a child is not a meal ticket in Spain" referring as it does to social benefits here in Spain, in itself does tend to imply that the person posting believes there is a connection between single mothers claiming benefits and using children as an excuse not to work. Thirdly, having read a lot of posts on this site i was surprised to hear that expression from that particular person. But I am sure he is big enough and grown up enough to answer for himself, so let's see. And fourthly, its personally insulting, to be stereotyped in such a way, and I didnt think this site would encourage that.
