Society, especially African societies, are generally uneasy with the idea of adult men and women who, for whatever reason, never got married or have children.
Single women are more prone than men to be advised to pray for spouses so much that the life of the average single African woman is one long prayer session for a husband.
More black people than ever, especially women are living permanent single childless lives so the phenomenon is becoming more common.
Single childless adults should be protected because they face all the normal pressures of life while simultaneously dealing with societal prejudices and their own personal pressures of loneliness, heartbreak, and social isolation.
When black African single childless people die their property is often free for all if they did not write wills and if they had no trusted friends or family to protect their interests.
