“Marriage isn’t for everyone. If you think marriage is an achievement, that’s on you. How do you know I’m not married? Do you think everyone needs validation from social media?” Uriel wrote.

Reaffirming her stance, Uriel reiterated her reluctance to divulge her partner or relationship status on social media platforms.

“I would never post my marriage or my partner’s full face here. Age-shaming and marriage-shaming is so 2018. Let’s maintain this energy and save the lives of young men and women,” she said.
