marriage is not important, single women, tabu
Many times women are judged upon their marital status. Even professionally successful women are asked questions about their spouse and children more often than they are asked about their work. A woman's life is often suggested to revolve but here's why marriage doesn't complete women. Five actors speak up on why marriage is not important for a woman's identity.

1. Tanishaa Mukerji

Recently, Tanishaa Mukerji was in news for freezing her eggs at 39. The actor mentioned how she was ready to do it much before. It brought her independence of thinking about relationships and motherhood in the future. Mukerji said, "More people need to go out and talk about this. It’s ok for women to not have children. That’s not the only calling in your life. It’s ok to not get married, not be in a relationship and not define yourself with a man beside you."

5. Pooja Bhatt

She added, "I’ve been there, done that, tried it and recommended it to people too. But my life is not incomplete because I choose to live the way I do."
