Abstract:

Whenever Helen Croydon mentions that marriage and kids just aren't on her radar, everyone tells her that she'll become?one of old ladies with lots cats'. But what, she asks, is so wrong with that? Cats don't have boring in-laws that take entire weekends and they don't soak the bathroom and scribble on walls either, do they? Just what is obsession with white weddings and 2.4 children anyway? For the first time in history, long-term relationships are no longer a necessity, but a luxury. Yet you're still deemed a failure if you don't The One, and worse if you're not even looking in.
