What are the challenges of being a single(never married, have no child)lady in your society?
Just wondering whether it is only in my part of the world that being a thirty-something single lady entails pressure from your family (who are ashamed because all your mates are married off), pressure from society(who have no regard for you as a single lady) pressure from friends (who look down on you that you can get a man), the natural pressure (of the biological clock ticking away on you) and Baby blues that just can't go away.
there are challenges and there is no doubt about that ...in my country unmarried man too comes under severe peer pressure , ...single woman does have tough time but things are changing lately..i still think it would take time..
Life is how you make it.And there are many roads to
choose from.Make sure its yours and not for someone else.
Hmm...let me get this straight, you are single, but you care about the opinion of everyone else ? Of society? What do you like about society? have you asked yourself that? If there is something you don't like about the society your living in, does that change anything?
Don't put this question like that, ask yourself am I happy? Based on that answer do what is next, disregard what friends tell you, what "society" (which in most cases are a bunch of idiots) says. If your happy then rock on!! if not do something to be happy, but be very sincere with yourself or you will regret it later. If you are happy you will be able without doing anything to convince everybody that the way your lining is the best way in the world for you.
Your views are great and ego boosting, I am trying to see whether I can learn from people of different cultures to compare whether my own culture is too hard on the women or not as I am thinking of writing a book on that. Thanks very much
in my society, unmarried women endure a lot of disrespect and trauma just because they aren't in a mans house. just like you they have to ptu up with pressure and are made to feel cursed because they aren't married. the effect of this is very severe as such ladies would do anything humanly and spiritually possible to be Mrs Somebody..
its tough for the lady and her family when marriage is equated with success in life,
I am a single, childfree woman. I never had any challenges because I have told my parents that from the time I was in my early 20s that I was never going to get married and have any children. I wanted a life as unencumbered as possible and I knew that children would serious interfere with my career plans.
I know that when I was twelve and my little cousin was constantly asking me questions and annoying me that I did not want any children. To me children are annoying, little demons. Even when I was child, I did not like children but preferred the company of adults who I believed were more evolved and more intelligent than noisy, snot-nosed children who are often hemorrhoids. I was also indoctrinated by my father that women who loved chidren were somewhat less intelligent than the childfree and career oriented woman.
Remained to be single for a Lady in our society is definitely a challenge to face through out the life. You are living in a society, where all most all are married. Why a single lady is looked down because the society loves the lady. The society wishes the lady should pass a life like every body. More ever the single lady after certain will get depressed. It is because the decision changes with the lapse of time. Frustration is natural to come in mind at a time when realization comes in mind being deprived of missing a husband and the love of own children.
I don't see what society would have to say about me being single, because society does not write any checks for me to help me. Society is what I see fit.

What does being single mean to you?Traditionally being single defined one's (marital) status. Anyone who is not married is legally considered (single) or available to get married. However most of us now place (dating couples) on the same pedestal as married couples. Therefore today we say single...
