I view my marriage and family as an achievement also, i can understand why other people wouldn't but i did feel insulted when it was labelled as 'disturbing' by a pp. That's all.
I don't think she said it was disturbing, just that she cringed when she heard it. I'm sure she didn't mean that being married for 20 years isn't an achievement. Given this thread is about taking your husband's name when you get married, I think the comment was aimed at those who think that being "Mrs someone" is an achievement over being "Ms someone". I'm sure that's all that was meant.
