Description
									In this feature doc, filmmaker Sara Martins examines why a growing number of North American women past their thirties, such as herself, are delaying or altogether avoiding getting married—and how their respective cultures regard them. She offers up fascinating and relevant insights into how the cultures and ethnicities that make up the diverse populations of Canada and the United States regard marriage, especially from the perspective of second-generation immigrants who may find themselves stuck between older traditional attitudes and newer ideologies. Never the Bride asks a diverse set of such women these important questions: Is there a stigma to being an older single woman in their culture? What pressures does that entail? How has their approach to finding a significant other changed over the years? Through their stories, Never the Bride delves into various topics surrounding love and marriage, such as divorce, dating in a technological age, the media's influence, and arranged marriages.
