About the book
Expectation is defined as something that is porbable or most likely to happen. It is also described as something we are bound in duty or obligation to do. Like many women, when I envisioned my future. I did not anticipate that I would grow older alone. I expected that I would be married with children at least by the time I was thirty. Moreover, I felt pressured to be happily coupled.
