In an article for Vogue, the activist revealed that she had “questioned the patriarchal roots of the institution, the compromises women are expected to make after the wedding, and how laws regarding relationships are influenced by cultural norms and misogyny in many corners of the world”.

“I feared losing my humanity, my independence, my womanhood – my solution was to avoid getting married at all. My conversations with my friends, mentors and my now partner Asser helped me consider how I could have a relationship – a marriage – and remain true to my values of equality, fairness and integrity,” she wrote in the article dated November 11.
