I just turned 30 at the end of last year. Never been married, no children. I've been in a few long relationships and am in one now. We talk about marriage, but my boyfriend is in no financial position to get married yet. It may be a couple years before he can do that. I don't even know if we'll survive, since my parents don't like him. I have, so far, spent my life studying, then training to be a physician. The vast majority of my non-physician friends are married with children. Of my physician friends, maybe half remain single, but none of them live in my state anymore. I've been feeling really down on myself for being good at many things in life, yet being a failure when it comes to finding a husband. Is it normal to be as old as I am without a husband / children?
