We’ve all seen the shirts that say, “Future Mrs. Timberlake,” “Future Mrs. Pitt,” “Future Mrs. Pattinson,” etc. Young boys aren’t taught that their entire identities and happiness center around a relationship with a woman.

Why must the markers of a woman’s identity change so drastically in response to her relationship status? Why is a woman defined by her relationships, and how society views those relationships?
