Would you be able to give up your career to get married? No, because without being able to do what I like and to develop my own projects outside of a relationship I would be unhappy and feel bored.
Why are you a feminist? I have a hard time saying that I am a feminist because everyone has their different definition of that term. I do support the idea of female solidarity and empowerment, and equality for everyone.
