More and more women are choosing to be single longer, prioritizing personal and financial development over the race to find a husband and having kids. Numerous studies have shown that there are plenty of benefits to the single-life that will have a positive impact on your physical health and personal growth. Here are some of the very best reasons why delaying marriage is ideal for today’s women.
The most obvious and significant benefit of being a single woman is that you can essentially do whatever you want. If you have a whimsical urge to go for a night out, plan a weekend away or look for a job in a new city, you are free to be spontaneous. Married couples have to negotiate every major life choice, often resulting in decisions that don’t truly suit either party.
- Better fitness levels
Studies have repeatedly shown that single people devote more time to regular gym workouts and are more likely to attend exercises classes. In contrast, people in long-term relationships are known to become ‘too comfortable’, feeling that they are secure enough to eat four pizzas a week. It’s also worth noting that people in unhappy relationships tend to pile on even more pounds than women in happy relationships (possibly due to comfort eating).
Instead of picking up your husband’s dirty socks and fighting about when to have dinner with the in-laws, you will have the time and energy to pursue your career goals. Whether you want to be a high-flying lawyer or open your own restaurant, there are no romantic responsibilities hampering your productivity.
