    Default Marry Smart?

    Did you catch that segment on today?

    Did you get the message, miss it, melt down or agree?

    Thoughts?

    Personally I get it, I understand what she is saying, disagree with some points, but do agree you need to plan for a family.

    I didn't see it. Does it mean marrying for reasons other than love? like for money, being a good father, stability and security etc..?

    I got such great value from my law degree. A career, a husband and now babies. The gift that keeps on giving.

    I met my dh at uni but that wasn't why I went. I think i agree with you Fitchick...i agree with the sentiment I think but not the delivery.

    Ok I only read that article, nothing this woman has ever written, but she comes across as a twit.

    Seriously, actively spend your college/uni years looking for a husband? What a joke. Work hard and chances are you're going to find someone along the way anyway.

    I can't believe as a woman, that should would be happy to promote this view to her children and grandchildren.

    i agree with putting the message out there to not leave it to the 25th hour to have kids...the rest i dont particularly agree with and find old fashioned..i thought on campus 'husband hunting' went out in the 50's?...no one i went to uni with was looking for a hubby...sure they were looking a good time but at 21yo no..not husband hunting. growing up it was just "assumed" that if you wanted kids in your late 30's / 40's then you could have them..wrong. i get really angry when i see celebs splashed across magazines having kids at 40-45yr etc..its the exception not the norm..not many women are abundantly fertile that age...i know many women who left it too late and seriously regret and are devastated by not having kids or couldnt cos thier fertility was unexpectedly stuffed by thier late 30's...so im all for getting that message that.

    I started uni three weeks after I turned 17, so husband hunting? I don't think so!
