At 43-years-old, even Bridget expected to be settled down and married by now. But, despite the (what we thought was) pretty conclusive ending of Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, she’s still single – though this time she refuses to listen to sad songs alone with glass of wine on the evening of her birthday. Now she dances alone to fun energetic songs with a glass of wine on the evening of her birthday. I know which one I’d rather be doing.
With all of her old friends settled down and married by this point in the series, Bridget seems to be slightly more distant from them now; this led me to posing this question: is it really that bad to be over 40 and still single?
