Being single can be hard, but it can also mean freedom, empowerment, and the opportunity to live life on your own terms. Now is the best time yet to be an unmarried woman. There is no pressure to get married unless it is the right person and the right time. Women are able to develop careers, enjoy friendships, have sex, and be independent. Marriage isn’t a requirement or something you avoid, women have the right to choose what is best for them.
