Women. Stereotypically, they are obsessed with marrying. That’s supposed to be their life goal. Much more so than men, they are expected to feel crushed by the prospect of living single. That’s probably why, when scholars and writers in the popular press talk about single people, they focus overwhelmingly on single women.
A new study shows that once they start living alone in midlife, women, more so than men, continue to live alone. Here are 5 reasons why they, and older women, embrace solo living.
Told she had two vaginas, wombs and cervixes, Eleanor Rowe feared she would never mother her own children.
But the 36-year-old has now defied the slim odds, which saw her experience the heartbreak of one miscarriage along the way.
Mrs Rowe only found out about her unusual anatomy five years ago, after she went to freeze her eggs as a single woman.
Doctors removed the wall that divided the vaginas – leaving her with two cervixes and wombs – in 2015, and a year later, she met her husband, Chris.
THIS is the shocking moment a woman gives birth alone in a filthy jail cell after prison officials are said to have refused to help.
Diana Sanchez, 26, gave birth to her son Jordan inside a Denver County jail on July 31, 2018 and now the mum has launched a lawsuit against the US city and county officials.
CCTV footage, which was recently released, shows Sanchez giving birth at 10.44am, almost six hours after his mother first told a guard she was going into labour.
The guard is said to have refused to come to her aid even after her waters broke an hour after she alerted him.
A hero mother killed while shielding her two-month-old son from gunfire has been identified as one of the 20 victims of Saturday’s shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.
Jordan Anchondo, 25, was shopping for back-to-school supplies when a gunman stormed into the store and opened fire with an AK-47 rifle on Saturday afternoon, her heartbroken sister has revealed.
Leta Jamrowski said her sister fell on top of the infant as she was shot. Anchondo was killed and the boy is being treated in hospital.
Three women held in custody for “disrespecting compulsory hijab,” or the so-called Islamic dress code, have been sentenced to a total of 55 years and six months.
A “Revolutionary Court” in the capital city of Tehran delivered the verdict to Monireh Arabshahi, Yasamin Ariany, and Mojgan Keshavarz who are behind bars in the notorious Qarchak prison.
Arabshahi and Ariany’s legal counsel, Amir Raeesian, told Ensaf News website August 1 that if the verdict is upheld, his clients would be sentenced to ten years to serve, each.

HERE’S THE VIDEO!! 🐋 – It’s hard to tell what all was happening because it was a deeper hole. The water was over my head (not saying much since I’m only 5ft tall) so @jeffbarron70 tied a rope around my waist just in case (safety first!). @charl3sfarm3r had the wire gate you see towards the end of the video blocking the hole to keep her from getting out when I would come up for air. Took me 3 times going down to grab her. She was so fast biting me, either biting the side of my arm or swallowing me up past my wrist every time, that it was hard to grab her. She was VERY aggressive to be such a big fish. When I finally got my arm between her gills and her gill plate, Charles moved the gate, and I STILL had a hard time getting her out of the hole. This is when I realized just how big she was. I remember being under water with her kicking to get to the top. Most of the fight was underwater where the video can’t show, then feeling Dad pull the rope when he knew I had the fish. @gavinr5 and @neal_carlton we’re standing on the structure, and Gavins laugh at the end is great 😂 it was a team effort getting her and me both in the boat since I wasn’t letting go! The video cut off right as I started screaming loud enough to rattle everyone’s windows in Illinois 😇 🎥: @blake.wollerman15 – I can’t thank y’all enough for having us out! Another year, another PB in Illinois! A YouTube video from the whole trip will be out SOON! I even have videos of getting bit and coming up the first 2 times laughing like a maniac 😂 – – – #GetBit #HoggOn #Noodling #Grabbling #HandFishing #Fishing #Flathead #Catfish
A BIKINI-clad woman dived head-first into a murky lake – before emerging with a monster catfish hanging off her arm.
Hannah Barron, 23, made the huge catch on a hunting trip to Illinois – and shared a picture to her 530k Instagram followers.
One impressed Facebook user said: “What a huge fish, if one of those bites me I don’t know what I would do.”
