Once a while even a successful, self sufficient woman feels a strong desire to get married. If you have the dilemma what is better: marriage or personal freedom, go to house of your married friend. The dreary and depressing stories about the niceties of family life, the sight of husband, dressed in a scruffy way, his tiresome way of treating his wife would help make your choice in favor of freedom. Though you may suppose that family life may not be so sad. Such experience will be a kind of vaccination against marriage.
It can be that way.
Nothing can better affect your psyche than the unhappiness of the close friend. Even if your married friend is not quite happy in her married life, still she feels her superiority over you, as you are always and everywhere lonely. She would keep telling you about her life, being sure that you are envious of her. That feeling of superiority will help her even more than the psychoanalyst. Thats why try not to be envy, even if your friend breaks with you. Think about yourself and your life, try to change something in it.
