Is Being Single “In”?

There was a time when a woman over, say 35, who was still single was thought of as “less than”…not quite up to par with her better off sisters who had managed to snag a husband…like they’re supposed to.  Something had to be wrong with her, right, because why isn’t she married?  This, actually, wasn’t too … Continue reading
