Thanks to Jackie for sending me the link to an article called "Society's stigma jumps from divorced to never-wed". To Jackie's friend, Tina, from whom Jackie received the link I say, "Yes, we're doomed, screwed, f**ked, and fated to look like losers wherever we go, me more so than you who I'm sure is at least 10 years younger than I." To Jackie, who got married a year ago December and is currently going through a divorce, I say "One day you'll understand and be grateful to have that divorce under your belt. Just wait. OH yeah, just wait..."
Anyway, the article says it much better than I did.
