Abstract: 

The purpose of this paper is to study the experiences of 30 to 49 year- old working girls about Celibacy. The major question of the study is whether re-definition of sexual identity among educated working girls have made them to prefer singleness to marriage.
A phenomenological version of qualitative method were applied in the study. The data were collected by using deep interviews. The participants were single working girls aging between 30 to 49 years old who were living in Isfahan. The findings showed that the preference of singleness to marriage in recent decades is affected by mega social conditions in one hand and on the other hand, it is a result of actors’ reaction in social sphere. Working girls in rethinking on traditional stereotyped roles and re-definition of gender identity, have created a new picture for them which have changed their expectations in their lives, as well.
Although through choosing Celibacy girls face with many problems, by resisting toward life structural stress they organize their lives as they wish. In fact, chosen singleness means they keep all facilities which had been obtained with much effort by education and job.
