25 Famous Unmarried Women Who Proved You Don’t Need A Husband To Be Happy.
#6. Coco Chanel
Chanel was involved in relationships with several very notable men, but never married. She once said, “I never wanted to weigh more heavily on a man than a bird.” That pretty well explains why she never took the plunge.
#7. Greta Garbo
Greta Garbo was never one to play follow the leader in life. She didn't want to marry just because everyone else was doing it. She once said, "You don't have to be married to have a good friend as your partner for life. There are some who want to get married and others who don't. I have never had an impulse to go to the altar. I am a difficult person to lead.”
#8. Chelsea Handler
Handler is another one that has spoken out against marriage. She once made a fake PSA warning people against it. She said, “Weddings are an extravagant waste of money. Why would people drop five or six figures on a one-day party when they could drop five to six figures on a pool? You know what relationships don’t end in divorce 50 percent of the time? The relationships that happy, single women, like yours truly, have with their pools. On top of that, I can’t accidentally make a baby with my pool. But you know what we did make together? A little jacuzzi. And those are way more fun than babies.”
#9. Sarah Silverman
Silverman has seen her share of relationship, but has absolutely no interest in marriage. She once told Playboy, "I love going to weddings, and I love it when my friends get married. I'm not against marriage, but it's just not for me. I'm a vegetarian, but I don't have a problem if you want a hamburger. Marriage, to me, is like eating meat. I think it's gross and f--king crazy… If you're getting married today, it's the equivalent of joining a country club that doesn't allow blacks or Jews."

#10. Susan B Anthony
During an interview in 1896, Anthony once said, “I never felt I could give up my life of freedom to become a man’s housekeeper. When I was young, if a girl married poor she became a housekeeper and a drudge. If she married wealthy, she became a pet and a doll."
She admitted once, however, that she turned down an invite to an event because she didn't want to alone. It sounds like she may have been a very confused woman in what she wanted.
