Elizabeth I, especially early in her reign, spent a lot of time talking about marriage. Being told to get married by her council (who were obsessed with the succession). Being proposed to by various foreign princes. Having noble suitors jostle for her attention. And, you know, given her experience seeing marriage (like, her father cutting her mother's head off) she was a bit reluctant. Can't blame her. And so, she spent a lot of time justifying her decision to remain single.
This mug, filled with some of Elizabeth's most famous responses to her marital status, is for all the people who are like, "seriously, stop asking me when I'm going to get married and have babies." Get this mug, and prominently display it when your aunt comes over. Put it on your desk and subtly drink your coffee when the office nosy person comes to gossip. And know that you are truly in the best company possible, with arguably the most amazing monarch in English history who had way more stuff to do than get married.
Remember, everything you buy is a Purchase with a Purpose, as I split 10% of profits between the local historical society in my hometown of Lancaster PA, and funding microloans to women refugee entrepreneurs through Kiva.
