You will find men living single as bachelors all their life. They will have girlfriend from time to time, but they remain independent. Have their own life, interact socially with men and women, manage jobs and houses all on their own. All their assets would have been acquired by themselves and not through any divorce settlement.

It is very rare to find a mature age woman who would operate as a single bachelor as described above. They will either have kids, some guy or two floating around who may be father to one of the kids. Possibly a house as proceeds from a previous divorce settlement but if the case there is likely another guy hooked up with her.



Women do not seek independence anywhere to the same extent that men do. Why is this?
