Brilliant piece Annie, I feel exactly the same! Society is not as happy for single people as much as they are for married couples because we aren’t following the prescribed formula that’s expected. A colleague of mine who was celebrating his wedding anniversary said to me recently when I told him I was single, “Oh you’ll never get a chance to celebrate these milestones!”

I just thought, well that’s NOT important to me — I celebrate being single & having freedom EVERY day! 😁
