A spinster, or old maid, is an older, childless woman who has never been married. A "spinster" is not simply a "single" woman, but a woman who has not formed a human pair bond by the time she is approaching or has reached menopause and the end of her reproductive lifespan
I fear Sarah-Jane is going to end up a lonely spinster with only a cat by her side for company.

A woman once she hits the big 3-0 & is still single...never been married, no kids. Usually blames her career for the fact that no guy wants her.
yeah, she's a spinster. She couldn't even get a man to marry her in her 20's, so good luck now!
