I actually found that rather insulting.  I need to find the author and punch her in the neck.

I thought it was funny too, but a friend of mine got super offended by it. 

 

Edit—- the author is ok at getting married but she sucks at marriage, so what does she know? It’s good for a giggle. 🙂

I don’t think it’s funny, I think it’s quite accurate. I see a lot of my single self and my single girlfriends in that article.

HAHAHAHAHAH

I thought it was hilarious and i’m not married yet, nor am i engaged tho my partner has indicated that marrying me is something he wants, eventually. Actually the only point in which i stoped laughing and saw my self was the not loving myself, so untill i get my proposal, I’ll be working on that.

still sniggering at my desk

I get the author’s point but it was a tad harsh.

Not sure how I felt about it. It’s not as if the author really has the best track record.

Some of her points, I believe, are true. But she was trying to be funny and witty and…I can’t say it worked…

The advice to become a single mother and “a husband will be along shortly” seems very foolish.

I think her points are accurate, but she was definitely harsh in her delivery. I’m not offended at all, because I’m engaged. But if I weren’t engaged, I might be a little hurt after reading that.

It is funny but sadly some points are  true (obviously there are exceptions!)  I want to send it to one of my girlfriends (she doesn’t realize her self worth) but I’m afraid she’ll slap me!!

@All In: I agree with you. I don’t think anyone should become a mother to find a husband. I think the author was trying to say that men are attracted to committed women, but then she took it a step too far.

I’m not offended by it, but I agree that it is a tad harsh. And I don’t agree with all the points. When I met my Fiance I was a bitter single girl who didn’t have any faith in men…this led many people to think I was a bitch. Fiance found it endearing for some reason and fell in love with what he calls my “spirited attitude.” We are now engaged and will be married in six months. So yea, plus I know A LOT of “bitchy” women who are married.

How about you aren’t married because you HAVEN’T FOUND THE RIGHT GUY YET! LOL…that’s what it comes down to ladies.

I completely agree that this is insulting on so many levels but I did think the last paragraph was hilarious:

“The bottom line is that marriage is just a long-term opportunity to practice loving someone even when they don’t deserve it. Because most of the time, your messy, farting, macaroni-and-cheese eating man will not be doing what you want him to. But as you give him love anyway — because you have made up your mind to transform yourself into a person who is practicing being kind, deep, virtuous, truthful, giving, and most of all, accepting of your own dear self — you will find that you will experience the very thing you wanted all along:love”.

I really liked this article. I found it thought-provoking. That being said I’m sure there are many other less salacious reasons women who want to be married are not, but that wouldn’t make a funny sassy article would it?

But seriously. I think she has pinpointed a few common problems.
