ROMANCE: Romantic Relationships:

marital status 2Ok, recently I’ve been wondering why is it that everyone appears to be obsessed with our marital status.  Nowadays, you can’t fill in an official document without declaring your marital status.

Moreover, I can’t go to a family get-together without some relation inspecting my fingers for an engagement ring or asking me if I’m dating.  And, when I say NO, they pull a face, that says: ‘ Oh poor Janette she’s pathetic and she’s never going to settle down and she’s going to die alone’. I KID YOU NOT; seriously, why is it that important?
