Female athletes and changes in marital status

While for male athletes, discussions surrounding their marriages will be limited to a few photographs of the newlyweds, the arrival of children and the occasional gossip that animates the masses; for female athletes the story is entirely different. With widespread perceptions and expectations focusing on childbearing and matrimony that transcend sports, there is certainly additional pressure and interest in aspects of the marriage that is usually not seen in the cases of male athletes.
