You don't have to be married to raise your own child. I've been divorced raising 3 kids alone for 8.5 years now. If you work... your kid can go to daycare until she is old enough for school and then go to school and after care. Not raising your own child just because you don't have a wife is a cop out and an excuse. Your daughter's mother is dead and she doesn't even live w/ her own father. That poor child. She deserves to know the truth and to be w/ her father... unless you just don't want her or aren't emotionally capable of taking care of her.

Yes, I can imagine life w/out a mother isn't easy for her... my kids are basically living w/out a dad (he's not dead, but he MIGHT see them once a year at the most.. the past few years has been longer than that) and it's hard on them, but it's their real life and we deal w/ that together. Yes, my 8 year old son wants me to get married because he wants a dad that lives w/ him... but that's not going to happen. He's still been w/ me almost every day of his entire life because I am his MOM and he needs me too.

Your daughter has a right to know that he Mother has passed away.
Is your cousin wanting your daughter to think she is her Mother? That's just wrong.
Do you still see your daughter?
You should be talking to your daughter about her Mother, showing her photo's and making sure she gets to know her Mother.
