Not everybody is going to get married – Michelle Hammond


Celebrated author, singer and public speaker,
Michelle McKinney Hammond has sent a strong
caution to ladies who prefer to wait for a man to
do everything for them.

Appearing on the most influential celebrity and
lifestyle show in Ghana, Celebrity Fanzone on
Viasat1 last Saturday, the best-selling author
insisted that not everybody will get married basing
her argument purely on statistics and advised
ladies to do something worthwhile with their lives
while waiting to be married.
“This may sound unchristian but everybody is not
getting married,” Ms. Hammond stated.
“Some people will die without ever getting married
and will have a fantastic life. Statistically, that’s a
fact. My aunt got married for the first time at the
age of 63 and we had to talk her into it. She was
having a great life,” she argued. Michelle
Hammond also rejected the widely held perception
that that an unmarried woman is an incomplete

“Single people sometimes invite the criticisms
because they are projecting that their life is
incomplete without a person and when you see
someone living life to the full, it really doesn’t
make room to interject that something is missing
from their lives,” she maintained.
Challenging the conventional practice of waiting for
the man to marry a woman and then take care of
her, Michelle encouraged women to also better
themselves in order to bring something to their
“I think we need to attract what we want in life by
being what we want to attract. A lot of women
spend a lot of time waiting for a man to come into
their lives and buy everything for them and be a
sugar daddy…and it’s like ‘what are you bringing
to the party?’ What are you doing? Set some
standard. Get some stuff of your own. Don’t be a
victim waiting for someone to take care of you,”
she advised.
Michelle has authored over 40 books (selling over
two million copies worldwide), including best-
selling titles The Diva Principle, Sassy, Single and
Satisfied, 101 Ways to Get and Keep His Attention.
