It is increasingly difficult to get married these days. And you can see a lot of our successful female celebrities are not yet married for one reason or the other.

ENCOMIUM Weekly spoke with some single female celebrities on why they are not married.


Can you please share with us the secret of your success in your chosen career?

Self determination and consistency. Those are the major things that keep me going.

What was your biggest challenge and how did you face it?

The fear of rejection. But I challenge myself not to be afraid, not to limit myself, to do something different. So nothing I do is different from what other people do.

What does love mean to you?

It means truth, sincerity and faithfulness.

Does being single bother/worry you?

No. Being in a relationship has to be right, to be real. Anything less than that I am not interested, I just left a relationship and I am not in a hurry. I am happy the way I am.

Why has it been difficult for you to get married?

It is not. Many people say marry me but I don’t really know them. I cannot jump into marriage because every other person is getting married. I want peace of mind. I don’t want a relationship for now.

So, what are the qualities of the man you want to spend the rest of your life with?

A truthful man, that’s all.
