No, but advice on lovless hooking up should be
My Grandmother, and her twin sister, came from Chester Illinois, to Wellesly College, (after taking a year of college prep to improve their Greek enough to be admitted) in 1920 to marry a Haavaad man. (Their grandfather was an 1869 Harvard Engineering graduate.) The sister did Okay, marrying a Harvard grad who later flew over the hump in Burma as a mercenary and made enough to live the rest of his life off real-estate investments, alternating homes between Wellesly, Cape Cod and Palm Beach. My grandmother was not so lucky, marrying an MIT grad who worked in a chemical plant in New Jersey and lived in New Jersey’s New York City suburbs.
Liberals screaming at the sky and shaking their fist at G-d.
Reality is a right-wing plot.
If not for reality, they might be happy.
Why do feminists care if women want to find a husband? Why do atheists care if someone believes in God?
This is known as the MRS degree. One of the only reasons engineering majors ever find girls in college.
It is a step up from a crack house...
It is good advice for the woman. Not so much for the man. The longer a woman waits to marry, the worse her chances. The more successful a man is, the wider his selection.
I know lots of women who went to school to earn their M.R.S. Degree.
People go through one hookup after another, and then one day when they are in their 30s, they wonder why “all of the good ones are taken.”
I met my husband working in retail on summer break. I was his boss! We decided to go on a date and got to talking and realized we were students at the same university! I’ll admit as a female I was sort of relieved because I knew from the start there was a chance he was “the one”, and I knew we weren’t going to afford much renting videos, although it was a fun job! It also told me he had ambition, working two jobs in the summer so he could go back to school in the fall. And he was later able to make enough so when we had kids I could stay home with them and not worry (to much) about money. Without my husband I could not have stayed home with the kids, and In college I didn’t think I’d want to stay home with the kids, but when the first was born I just couldn’t leave them until they were older, I wanted to raise them.
There is a deeper level to this argument.
Here is an ad from a credit report company, in which the newly married young man lives in poverty because of his new wife’s debts. What wasn’t said, but is very common these days, is that college students are terrified of their own or their potential spouse defaulting on a student loan.
There were about six women at my school back in the seventies. They had their pick. They did not pick me.
Would a young woman be better off with a husband who is an unattractive, condescending, unfit slob BUT who is a Princeton graduate as opposed to an enlisted man recovering from his battle wounds at Walter Reed? I think most of us would have a very definitive answer here, Mrs. Patton, and you probably wouldn’t like it.
