Single-Focus Time for Family

“There are certain things in a family life that I think are sacred and that, as adults, we can take for granted—that time alone with your child when you’re not focused on any other individual and you’re just focused on your child. We multi-task in life but I think there are certain things and certain people that deserve that single-focus time and being with your children is one of them. I don’t think mixing dating and family fun time if you’re not in a marriage or a serious relationship is appropriate.”

Some of the Most Beautiful Parts of Life

While single, I couldn’t believe “how much people would judge a woman’s worth
or judge how successful she is based on whether or not she’s married.
And I’m not slamming marriage — marriage and family are some of the most beautiful parts of my life.
But everybody meets their own person in their own time,
and I don’t think a woman should be looked at like,
‘Oh, you’re still not married?’ Why do people still think that way?!”
~ Holly Madison
