Is there any relationship between marital status and marketability in business? One might find this to be an odd question, but allow me to expound for sake of discussion. In today’s ever-changing business environment, there seems to be a perception that married women are more stable than single women. Do you see any truth to this perception?
Consider this: Single women can be viewed as high-achieving, go-getters who pursue experiences in order to ascend to the next level of professional opportunity. Being single does come with certain freedoms which can make professional ascension a primary focus while living the single life. Does marriage change a woman’s professional pursuits? Does stability become more of a priority in a woman’s life after she obtains her MRS Degree?
