    Why do you say that? issues of the hearth? You mean the only way to raise kids is get married to your highschool sweetheart, cook good food, and get knocked up before 25? LOL What - only business minded women attend college?

    Did you know that women graduate at a higher rate than men from colleges?



    Would you say the same for guys who attend rather than get married young and have children - that they have a diluted yearning for a traditional familial role? To me it's untrue as a blanket statement - that's entirely dependent on the individual in question. Some do - some don't. My parents both were moderately educated before they married and had children. They didn't want to raise children while struggling too much in the beginning of their marriage - they wanted to make sure they could handle us, financially, first.


    True - thus - what you do have in life, you better be able to support yourself and your kids you have in the future.



    Highly doubtful - women AND men are marrying AFTER the college years these days (it's been this way for a while) - the number of those married and parenting while young (late teens / early 20's) is steadily declining. Statistics reflect that those who get pregnant/have kids while in this younger age bracket constitute the majority of single, uneducated or partially educated, mothers.

    If you want to care for your children - even if you're a happily married couple - you see to your education so you can get a decent job. It's much harder doing it the other way around: children first - career later.

    I know quite a few uneducated single people - but all of the educated women I know are married . . . and most have kids. What is a truth, though - is that it is much harder to secure a good education AFTER you have kids . . . never mind the concern of finding a husband - that's not complicated for those reasons.

    Why people would think that it would be a problem, I just have no clue.
    My goodness, you certainly like to read a lot of things in simple sentences that their author never intended.

    Calm yourself! When you've done so, I'll walk you through this.

    My point is quite simple, and obvious to the casual observer.

    Otherwise attractive women whose main goal is to be traditional housewives have a rather easy time getting a husband. They're willing, and make it known that they're available and comport themselves with that goal in mind.

    Professional women in general who wish the same must divide their efforts to a far greter extent while in college or building a career.

    As all but the dullest preschool children can grasp, limited efforts and finite time lead to diminished results.

    The question was not about whether professional women were less desirable, were less likely to end up in successful marriages if they did marry, or anything of the sort. The question was whether they had a harder time finding a husband at all.

    To use a simple metaphor, a person who fishes daily will be more likely to catch a fish than a person who fishes occasionally.

    There now! You see how we can arrive at reasonable conclusions when we eschew hysterics?

    People don't really change very much as a whole. Silly ideas come and go, that people of the same gender can really be married for instance, but sooner or later, Reality and Human Nature reassert themselves, without mercy.

    Reality is women are and want to be professionals and 80% are not in grad school looking for a sugar daddy.

    No need to say anything else since you are repeatedly wrong. Here is you one more clue--People who go to law school take LSAT's, not GRE's.

    How do you define "human nature" ?

    How does "human nature" impact on educated women's opportunities for finding a husband?

    How will "human nature" reassert itself in relation to same sex marriage?

    Do you think that "human nature" will reassert itself and take us back to times when legislation precluded married women from owning property, and domestic violence will again become acceptable as the best way to deal with a wife who fails to please you?
    how do you define it?

    People in law school call it law school not grad school.

    Here is another hint--some people do joint degrees like JD/MBA's so "law school" is only half the equation. Hope you are taking notes
