Single women are those women who are not married neither are in any relationship. The ratio of increasing singlehood amongst women in India has no specific reasons or causes behind it and the sex ratio has hardly anything to do with that. There is no particular list of reasons as to why a woman is single this is very subjective and the reason for each single woman may be different. Movies and television have such a great impact on people here in India. The youth especially gets highly influenced by it, they start dating at an early age and then they end up with a break-up soon. Girls being more emotional human beings get negative feelings about relationships and prefer to remain single in the future. Then again, the reel life description of “The Mr. Right” coming into their life gives rise to extra-ordinary expectations which don’t allow them to accept an average guy. Although the movies and television alone cannot be held responsible for the increasing singlehood amongst women in India, there could be many other reasons like a disturbing family life, divorced parents, confusion relating to the sexuality etc.
The women today are literate, independent and self-assured. Over the decade, the mentalities of women across India have changed drastically. They no more believe in sitting at home and waiting for their prince charming to come and marry them and give them a better life. They now believe in making their life better by themselves. They don’t consider themselves different from the men when it comes to taking over the responsibilities of the household finance. This assertiveness in a way has given birth to a kind of self-confidence, which doesn’t force them to get married or enter into a relationship to feel secured financially or otherwise.
Earlier, women used to give up on their expectations and accept even the harsh treatment, they were subjected to, but the scenario has changed as the gender equality is spreading its wings wider, women do not agree to be treated badly. Women are now exploring their sexuality and different kinds of relationships. Education has bestowed the woman with the gift of confidence and independence, which has made them believe that they do not need a man to validate their lives!
After coming out of a failed relationship most women become too cautious about getting into another one, they strive to find the rightly balanced relationship which does not consist of the same flaws as the earlier one had and if they don’t find such a relationship they prefer being single.
Singlehood is not looked upon with contempt in such cases but when women cross the ‘ideal marriage age bar’ and still continue to be single, the society doesn’t treat them very well. Unfortunately, the Indian society is not very open-minded to accept the 30 plus single women!
