The reasons vary; career, money, not having found the right partner yet, even today’s political climate.
Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross recently said in an interview; “that she’s “very pleased” with her life just as it is. It’s sort of fascinating to be 45 and single and childless,” Ross admits. “Happily single, I should add. Not at home crying about it.” She continues: “Some of the ability to reflect on what I really want comes from pushing up against a society that shames me for not having the expected trappings. I’m very pleased with my existence these days. Have I had to learn to make friends with loneliness? Yes. I think if I were in a relationship, it would be the same.”
