I’m 34 and the mother of a baby girl.
I was speaking to a guy friend recently who told me that I had approached my sell-by date of getting married and should just focus on my studies (I went back to school), because I could not land a husband.
Surely Brenda, is there such a thing as a sell-by date for women? I also don’t want to have any more children and he said it was impossible to get a man who did not want children as well.
What do you think?
Nonsense. Don't let some ignorant and backward man's view of marriage and woman affect your thriving life.
A sell-by date? Are you a packet of milk?
Just because he doesn't want a mature woman who comes with a wonderful child, definitely doesn't mean that there isn't a man out there who doesn't. And besides – a lot of men are coming with their own children as well, looking for love as well.
You and I both know many women who have gotten married with all their children, and so we both know for a fact that it isn't true.
Unnecessary stigmatisation of single others, and women in general, if the news is anything to go by, needs to STOP. I hope you laughed in his face and went on your merry way.
