I’ve just read this article from the NY Times about how modern women in America depend less and less on man. I don’t know if it’s a real trend in Europe, but around me, I don’t see many women living on their own and happy about it. Most single women I know aren’t enjoying really much their celibacy.
Personally, I would be devastated to live without my man. It’s not that I depend on him, I’m quite independant. But life without him couldn’t be the same. Most of my friends would agree with that.
