A friend of mine sent me this site as a way to cope with being single:
First of all…cope with being single?! Does anyone else see a problem with this thinking? But, I know what it feels like. When our eternal reward is Exaltation in the Celestial Kingdom, and that is dependent on Celestial marriage, how can we not feel eternal pressure to find a companion?
And second, the judgements being passed throughout the article are a little disturbing. The giggly freshman is described as a pretty, immodestly dressed, ditzy youngster still in her teens or just barely leaving them behind. She stays in school just long enough to land a husband and waltzes out of school to replace her husband’s mother in domestic duties.
I think that’s a bit unfair. Focussed on a certain demographic, and just trying to make oneself feel better at someone else’s expense. “Well, we wouldn’t want them anyway, because if they made a choice like that, then clearly they don’t have our values.” While this may have truth in it, it doesn’t seem to be fair in the large scale, and it doesn’t make me feel any better.
All the good ones are not taken. Why? Because a good one would spot your intelligent, confident, well-rounded, independent personality from a mile away, and he hasn’t seen you yet. So bring on the tube tops, the rejects are blocking our view!
So, if I never get married, does that mean that there actually aren’t any good men, and the earth will be populated by shallow, domesticated females bound to shallow, hormone driven men? Please.
