According to the Pew Research Religious Landscape Study conducted in 2014, the percentage of unmarried women (including never married, widowed and divorced/separated) amongst evangelical Protestants was 42 percent.
Those numbers were similar to that of women in the Catholic Church (40 percent) and among mainline Protestants (45 percent).
For too long women have been fed overly romantic — and unbiblical — ideas about a husband’s role, just as men have been fed overly romantic and unbiblical ideas about a wife’s.
Instead of looking to a man to confer status, wealth, and security, women are now more free than ever to view men as partners and fellow human beings.

And though I enjoy a life that I would consider abundant — full of friends and family, great professional opportunities, a decent level of financial freedom, and above all else, an extremely deep spiritual relationship with the Creator of the Universe — I recognize that to many younger women, I’m a cautionary tale. “Perhaps even more strikingly, the number of adults younger than 34 who had never married was up to 46 percent, rising 12 percentage points in less than a decade.
For women under 30, the likelihood of being married has become astonishingly small: Today, only around 20 percent of Americans ages 18–29 are wed, compared to nearly 60 percent in 1960.” Curious about the percentage of single women in churches, I decided to look into the numbers myself.
Many of us would like to have husbands who would say this about us: "Who would be willing to let his wife go through one street after another to other men’s houses, and indeed to the poorer cottages, in order to visit the brethren?
For years my parents’ church supported a missionary in Nepal who, by all accounts of her ministry, was the definition of badass.
But — and I’m not sure where or how I learned to think this way — even as a young girl, I distinctly remember praying that I would never end up like her. Not because she was a spiritual powerhouse who was doing amazing work among the young girls of a developing country. Flash forward a couple of decades to the present day.
I was babysitting a family of outrageously adorable children and as we walked to the park, one of the girls asked me if I had a little girl of my own. The other sister asked if I was married and I admitted I wasn’t.
The first girl stopped dead in the middle of the sidewalk and exclaimed, “You mean you don’t have a man?
For most of us, we have wanted to have husbands and families, but have also wanted to make use of our God-given gifts and talents.
