Finally, you are about to become her prince on a white horse and make your friend happy with the long-awaited offer … but she loves Runaway Bride.
It is generally accepted that every girl, by definition, wants to get married. Allegedly, since childhood, little young ladies, dreaming of a handsome prince, try on their mother's veil and plan the most beautiful day of their lives - their wedding day. But is it? Do all girls want to get married? And if they don't want to, then why? And where does this rejection of single women come from? Why is it considered that an unmarried lady is inferior and necessarily unhappy? Where did such concepts as “celibacy crown” and “old maid” come from and by whose fault?
As part of the article "Why girls don't want to get married" we will try to find answers to all of the above questions.
Why girls don't want to get married. What does the statistics say?
Thirty years ago, only 6, 2% of women from 30 to 34 years old never crossed the coveted threshold of the registry office. Such women were considered flawed (since no one got married, then something was wrong with them), they were pitied and called old maidens.
Today, the number of unmarried women has grown - up to 20% in Russia, and as much as 50% - in America
Gradually, a whole layer of women was formed - financially independent and successful, who do not want to get married. And contrary to popular belief, these are by no means losers and not gray mice. On the contrary, these are beautiful, bright, successful, ambitious and self-aware ladies.

As you can see from the poll, not all unmarried women are lonely and unhappy. Moreover, some of them live quite comfortable and fulfilling lives.
So maybe you shouldn't blame women who don't want to get married? There is no single standard of happiness. And what brings joy to one person is absolutely not suitable for another. And the presence of a husband and a stamp in the passport has not yet made any woman truly happy (the euphoria of the first honeymoons does not count).
Look around, how many unhappy, disappointed and tired married ladies are around? Ladies who hurried to get married after listening to their mother or "good" friends, ladies who got married just for the sake of marriage and because it is necessary.
Personally, I think that everything has its time. A 30-year-old girl will meet her faithful, and a lady who has already been THERE will dare and give herself another chance. Yes, and signing up for the Childfree club cannot protect against “sudden” and unplanned pregnancy. The main thing is to be happy, regardless of social status, financial stability and the presence of a husband. After all, happiness, it is, is so unshakable and fragile. So let's live peacefully and stop pointing out to everyone around them their little weaknesses.
