What is the importance of marriage in a woman’s life?

Marriage is an integral part of human culture and I think it is important not only for women but for both men and women to maintain equilibrium in society.
Alas! We are part of the society where people feel that you must have a partner with whom you can live happily ever after. I do agree that with a loving partner, life is blissful but being single is also not a punishment.

Why have you chosen to stay single?

For me, it is a matter of individual choice. As they say, being single is being a lot wiser than being in the wrong relationship.

What are the traits you look for in a life partner?

Emotionally stable and available, motivated, makes me a better person, and a good sense of humour.

Best thing about being single…

Time for myself,
Freedom
Self-reliance.

The one thing that scares you about being single…

Only thing that scares me about being single or I can consider as a disadvantage of being single is being unable to share pictures on social media with the caption – having fun with hubby!!!

Does society treat women differently when they’re single in their 30s?

Frankly yes and not only society even friends and relatives treat you differently to some extent.

Do women find it harder to find a life partner as they grow older?

Not harder but choices do get limited after a certain age.
