I want to be a minority Comments Off on I want to be a minority

Posted on February 01, 2007 by Marna

Growing up, I had this thing about being different… to the point where my parents said, “why can’t you be like everyone else?” This continues in my adult life.

The New York Times analyzed recent census data and discovered more American women are living without a husband than with one. That’s right. As my sweet single sisters and I continue to date the globe, there are only 49 percent of us that have actually married a guy.

While I’ve enjoyed being single and letting my “happily” married friends live vicariously through me, I’m ready to make the switch. Now that being single is popular, I want to go to the 49 percent side.

Being married means never having to date again. I’m ready for dating retirement and I’m ready to be a minority. I don’t want to be like everyone else.
