(Closed) Turning 32 and Still Single :(
Report rude comments and message the mods with a link so we can delete them with more efficiency! As a single, childless, never-been-married 32 year old woman, how do I not feel like a failure? Same reason I, a single, childless, never-been-married 31 year old woman feel the same way sometimes. It cycles. It might be somewhat biological, but I think it’s just a societal and sometimes parental expectation that gets drilled into us from a young age, so it feels like we’re sort of going against the grain. You just have to remember, you’re awesome, and you can do whatever awesome things you want because you’re single and don’t have kids. Not that there’s anything wrong with being married and having kids, it’s just a different lifestyle. All your money goes to whatever the fuck you want it to.

106-year-old woman says key to longevity is staying single
If you’re a single woman over 30 you might think it’s a jungle out there. But did you know there’s actually a “man drought” on? Or that in some places those who don’t have a partner are known as “leftover women”? The loaded terminology and expectations have led to an unhealthy stigma from which women still struggle to break free, according to documentary maker Mariona Guiu.
Guiu realised there was a problem a few years ago when she felt sad at the thought of being single and couldn’t pinpoint why. The result is the documentary Singled Out, which tracks five single women across four countries — China, Turkey, Spain and Australia.

I got married in , when I was 20 years old. I was married for 18 years really, 15 years because that is when we separated.

Most of the observed effects could not be explained satisfactorily until now, mainly because of methodological drawbacks and insufficiency of the data.
The most common explanations refer to selection effects, caregiving in later life, and some positive psychological and sociological effects of having a younger spouse. The present study extends earlier work by using longitudinal Danish register data that include the entire history of key demographic events of the whole population from onward.
Controlling for confounding factors such as education and wealth, results suggest that having a younger spouse is beneficial for men but detrimental for women, while having an older spouse is detrimental for both sexes.
