Mysterious Personal Life: Married Or Single?

No information of her getting married or having an affair has ever surfaced out. She has neither spilled the beans on having any boyfriend nor mentioned about having a baby.
So, it's unclear if Rose is married to her spouse or is single. Probably, she is not taken and is focused on brightening her strength and skills of journalism than to build a family. She is possibly waiting for a perfect man to show up and be her perfect husband.
