I’m pretty astounded at this article. Maybe some people lie when they say they don’t want to get married, but most don’t. Many women have very legitimate reasons for not wanting to. This article only gives men further excuses to disrespect women’s boundaries. In addition, the article is heteronormative and enforces the traditional idea that marriage is each women’s goal or that every relationship is legitimized only by marriage. I truly hope that you can take a look at some of your own bias that has shone through this article and reassess how we treat women in society. Whether they’re “lying” or not, we need to respect their boundaries when they say no to something. Period.
