These 14 People Prove That Being Unmarried Is The Worst Thing Ever

As I entered my 20s, I was informed by not-so-concerned auntyjis that I needed to get married ASAP. As if my college degree, the job I was proud of, the marks I shamelessly show off suddenly didn’t matter anymore. So being the obedient, respectful child that I am, I decided to find people who proved their point. :)))))))


Priyanka Chopra

A former Miss World, a chart-topping singer, a Padma Shri recipient and easily one of India’s most recognizable faces, poor lil’ Priyanka is proof that all your achievements are of no use unless you have a spouse to share them with. Someone please tell her that her ovaries are drying up and she needs to have kids ASAP.

Jon Hamm

One of the many reasons I watched Mad Men and seriously considered a career in advertising is…unmarried. After winning a Golden Globe, running a production company, and being completely in love with his girlfriend of 10 years, you’ve got to pity Jon for never bowing down to societal pressure and getting married.

Oprah Winfrey

Producer, actress, award-winning everything, talk-show host, and healer of several wounds, Oprah should have REALLY taken time out from living life on her own terms to find someone nice and get married. Her life must be so unfulfilling. 🙁

Karan Johar

HOW DARE THIS FINANCIALLY STABLE, CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED INDIVIDUAL HAVE A CHILD WITHOUT A SPOUSE!? Of course, he’s won awards, given us movies that have become an undeniable part of Indian pop culture, and hosts a successful talk show. But someone please tell him that he needs to get a legal document to validate his happiness immediately.

Al Pacino

This Academy, Emmy, and Golden Globe Award-winning filmmaker and father is basically living proof that all those shiny trophies don’t mean shit unless you’ve given someone a shiny ring. Sigh.

Matthew Perry

The person who made Chandler Bing and his truly beautiful, sarcastic one-liners iconic is unmarried AF. He went on to become a pop culture icon, battle his demons with the support of his loved ones, and re-establish himself as a mainstream actor. Argh, the poor man.

Lata Mangeshkar

I guess she was so caught up in becoming a living legend and singing songs that can move people to tears that she forgot to get married. Hmpf.

Kangana Ranaut

National Award winning actress, a woman who repeatedly fights back, holds her own and made her mark, Kangana needs to get that shaadi business done ASAP mostly because she clearly needs someone else to fight her battles. Poor helpless thing.

Ratan Tata

Humanitarian, philanthropist, industrialist, Ratan Tata needs to be told that he is unmarried because he’s obviously been far too busy making a difference to have noticed.

Harper Lee

The woman behind To Kill A Mockingbird‘, easily one of the best novels of well…any century, Harper Lee was probably too busy making people aware of racism to have gotten married. Such an incredibly sad life.

Kiran Desai

What’s the use of writing a Man Booker Award winning book if you don’t at LEAST sign those wedding papers, right?

Barkha Dutt

Honestly, Barkha, if only you took a day off from your award-winning journalism to find your perfect match. I’m not angry, I’m just disappointed.

Sushmita Sen

The tale of Sushmita Sen’s spinsterhood is heartbreaking. But on the bright side, at least she has her two beautiful daughters, her films, and that kinda shiny Miss Universe crown to help her through her difficult life.

APJ Abdul Kalam

A man who inspired generations, became one of India’s best Presidents, and made a mark with his scientific mind most definitely did not need marriage to validate his existence. Honestly, guys, I can’t be sarcastic with him. So take that, annoying auntyjis.
