Yeah considering most kids on campus are about 18-24 and presumably have a brain and aspiration to achieve on their own merit, I'd say husband or wife hunting is not really their top priority.... Maybe in certain faculties there's those types.., but not overall!

Wow, spend most of your time at uni "husband hunting"? How is that progressive? A lot of people don't really know who they want to be, let alone who they want to be with...I'd be in a dark place now if I followed that advice.
I can see her point about fertility though, but her solution/advice is not delivered well.

I was 17 when I started Uni - the last thing on my mind was finding a husband, and rightly so... I was 17!! I went to uni to, well, get an education for my own personal and professional development, outrageous I know.
This article is just infuriating and wrong on so many levels.

Ironically I started dating DH in my first year of uni but we knew each other for a while and he was not another uni student. Here I was at university first time around... actually studying for a DEGREE. ya know, to better myself, to gain a qualification? Idiot.
I chuckled throughout reading that It's like she's stepped out of the Happy Days era. I especially loved where she said, oh you can catch up on the work later, spend 75% of your time trying to get a husband. With a 25% effort rate, I'm thinking most people wouldn't see more than a semester before failing dismally. Good luck with that method

Hmm DH and I both went to Uni but in COMPLETELY different fields and from uni's two states apart! We met somewhere completely unrelated to either of our uni's or work. If I'd limited myself to people I met in Uni I would have been sorely disappointed by now and would have missed out on meeting my amazing husband. Also, my Uni bf's weren't "forever" material IYKWIM haha!

To be honest, I don't see why people would tie up their undies in a knot over this. I think she means well and has an important message, although delivering her message across to a large audience and getting their approval certainly doesn't seem to be her strong point.
I went to uni at seventeen, baby in tow, and whilst I was certainly not looking for a husband, it would have been welcomed, as I'm one of those freaks that loves popping out lots of babies.
I didn't meet my ex at uni, and actually I think what you meet at uni are your friends, and lecturers that shape your world view. You pick up good and bad habits there. I think who you end up marrying is something similar to you, whether that be similar upbringing, same church, same hobby, same profession, same values. Same something, basically. I doubt that many people get married to people they went to uni with.
