Princeton mom: Women have a "shelf life"
Apparently, the letter this Princeton mom wrote to the school's paper went viral.
The part of this that bothered me (and I am a 32 year old woman who has never married), is that this woman assumes that after about 30, all single women just gets desperate and "settle for what they can get" for a husband. And they then end up less happy then they could be. I also didn't think it was correct that the only time one would find someone who is also an Ivy Leaguer is while they are in college. There must be plenty of opportunities after graduation.
BUT - does she have a point (even if her attitude about herself is wrong) in finding someone who "matches" you? Do opposites in education or social status usually lead to incompatibility over the long-term in marriage?r
