Women told to stop looking for Mr Right

This must be one giant kick in the teeth for feminism. After years of trying to educate (some one say indoctrinate) women, the feminists find that what women "really, really want" is not a managerial job in an office, to be the head of a multi-national, or a small waistline, bigger boobs, a smaller bum. No, what they "really, really want" is... a good, reliable husband.

"Of course, women are loth to admit it in this day and age, but ask any soul-baring 40-year-old single heterosexual woman what she most longs for in life, and she probably won't tell you it's a better career or a smaller waistline or a bigger apartment. Most likely, she'll say that what she really wants is a husband (and, by extension, a child)," she writes."

And if you're a medium rated kind of guy on the handsomeness scale like me, you'll perhaps feel a bit better knowing that some of the really pretty girls you chased at school and in the discos and pubs of your late teens that you are the one that gets the last laugh as they rejected you in favour of a better looking guy. And, according to the statistics, your marriage was quite likely (or still is) to end up in divorce,

"The theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is – look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality," writes Gottlieb, a 40-year-old single mother who now admits she wishes she had "settled" for any of the "perfectly acceptable but uninspiring" men she rejected during her search for the perfect man."

What does this tell us about love? That while it may be fabulous, exhilarating, jaw dropping while it lasts, at the end of the day, it's the practicalities of life that concern us most.

good one crazy man.
It's weird how people under the influence of theory can delude themselves to their own detriment. Men are also under many illusions and now also can get the milk without marrying the average-looking cow. So, women lose. Luckily for them, they've got a lot of money, because that's what men want, only lower in importance to sex.
I still don't think that those women in the study, or anywhere actually know what a sacrifice marriage is. They'll still divorce, or take out their bad luck on the poor schmuck who marries her without realising that she's just settling.
