I am expected to make my life choices
Always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important

from Beyoncé (Ft. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie) – ***Flawless Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Still today, girls like to keep in mind that they should be married by a certain age.

A potential promotion at work, an opportunity abroad etc — none of it should never come in the way of marriage. The vicious common idea is that you’ve somehow failed at life if you’ve never walked down the aisle.
