A woman’s identity and self-worth are not dependent on marriage. Singlehood is an option in life. Some are in pursuit of a career and economic independence; some take vows of celibacy to dedicate their lives to God’s service; some have the responsibility of caring for old parents or young siblings. Chronic ill health and physical disabilities may stand in the way of marriage. Divorce or death of a partner may leave behind single mothers.
