An interesting fact: the tā al-marbūṭāh (ـة ), a marker of feminine gender, is not featured in words that are essentially specific to women. For example:
طالق، حامل، عانس
A divorced woman, a pregnant woman, a spinster

Observe the following examples and determine if we add the tā al-marbūṭāh or not.

أنتِ طالقة، أنتِ حاملة، أنتِ عانسة

أنتِ طالقٌ، أنتِ حاملٌ ، أنتِ عانسٌ
