Absolutely nothing. Being single or facing divorce, separation or widowhood doesn't mean unhappiness. Singles - the latest, largest and least understood minority in America -are mad as hell and they're not going to take it anymore. Drawing on many statistics and richly detailed case studies, Maryam Jorjani proves that society's pressures and misconceptions of togetherness drive many of us to get married. The result is often depression, divorce, addiction, violence - even suicide. Her conclusion: living the single lifestyle, free and independent, may just be the best prescription for what ails America.
French-born Maryam Jorjani was educated at Sorbonne. After a notable career in the fashion industry, she is currently the director of international accounts for a major U.S. brokerage firm. For the past 24 years, Maryam has been leading a happy and productive life as a single woman.
