Recently read an article on the difference between "single" and "unmarried". The author perceived a positive connotation in "single", as in "there's still hope, she's young (read fertile) and pretty (read able to attract a man)", but "unmarried" was reserved for women like Elena Kagan who is not young/fertile and isn't pretty by American standards.

I'm not sure I agree with that author's perception, but like her, I don't see why it should matter in Elena Kagan's case.

Me? I prefer "free-range" over the single/unmarried duality.

My only problem with "free-range" is that it makes me think of chicken. At the same time, it's nice to know you aren't forced into cramped living conditions, and made to consume questionable feed. :)
