A woman’s identity and self-worth do not depend on her marital status. To be single is not a tragedy. It is now becoming the trademark of a ‘superwoman,’ whose eyes are focused on the highest rung of the corporate ladder. She walks tall in her self-confidence and is warm, friendly and humorous.
Some women are single by choice.
Careers and economic independence leave no time for permanent relationships. They grow up with a new set of values and want partners who can live up to their expectations. Besides, the New Age morality has made sex easily available, without commitment or responsibility. Others may choose to be celibate and devote their lives to God.
