Another article claims:
Women who get married before the age of 25 make up about 64 percent of all divorces in the U.S. On the other hand, women who get married in their late twenties make up only 16 percent of the divorces. This means that any woman who gets married before she turns 25 is about four times more likely to get a divorce. (Women in their 30s have even better odds of staying married.)
It's like we are all in one of those "Keep Your Hand on the Car" Contests- the last one to remove her hand, wins the grand prize. Without knowing it, I have been steadfast in keeping my hand on that car.tells some strangers at the grocery store that she worries about me because I am not married yet- I will just tell her that she should be proud because I am less likely to be divorced than old "whats-his-face" that I dated in high school.
I want to get married someday...it makes having an incredibly active daily sex life a lot less slutty when it is just one person for the rest of your life. I want to buy a house with a hot tub and a bar and a big TV and a yard with a fence (for outdoor "doing it" privacy) and live in it with someone beside my bitchy little rat dog. I want to take vacations and have adventures with my best friend who also wants to jump my bones EVERY single day.
It is totally reasonable that I will one day find a man who thinks that my quirks are charming. I mean, who wouldn't want a girl who has dance parties with her dog, who sometimes eats a bottle of wine for dinner instead of food, who forgets sunblock when laying out for 5 hours, who trips EVERY time she wears cuffed pants, who could talk about Twilight for hours one day and high level business strategy the next, who owns more pairs of shoes than books (hey! the public library is sort of an addiction...why buy when you can borrow germ-filled used books for free), who idolizes Martha Stewart (but not enough to actually become domestic), who once drank so much she forgot how to read (hey- lean cuisine directions are hard!), and who is known to say WHATEVER is on her mind even when is is best to be locked in a secret vault. I mean, he has to meet MY CRITERIA, too....but he is out there...right?
And every year that passes...we are more likely to last forever...right???
