True or False?

“Men won’t buy the cow if the milk is free.”

Duh! True –  if he’s lactose intolerant.

With “A Little Valentine’s Day Straight Talk: Young women in college need to smarten up and start husband-hunting

Susan Patton has raised important issues regarding young women, men, marriage, and happiness.

Nina Bahadur makes good points in her response in The Huffington Post

Interesting opinion from a man “Susan Patton Told The Truth” by James Taranto

Alexandra Petri has a hilarious take in The Washington Post

Before we become sucked up by and scarred from the intellectual “Mommy Advice Wars” cat fight –

How about changing the question… “Will women buy the cow if the milk is free?”

Ellen DeGeneres may have a few thoughts on that?

OR simply “Will people buy the cow (or the bull) if the milk is free?”

HA-MUSINGS

Sometimes it’s just cheaper to rent. The maintenance is too high.

Most 20-Somethings won’t pay for their music, let alone their milk… if they can get it for free.

With adolescence now lasting ’til age thirty-nine, most 20-Somethings can’t conceive (PUN alert) of having to deal with fertility or family financial crises. Mortality isn’t on the radar either.

Bottom line: There are a multitude of variable factors in every woman’s (and man’s) individual situation. Any specific advice needs to be taken with a bucket of calming Epsom salt.

In love and marriage… it’s complicated.

What do you think?

      Are we talking milk or sex here? All I can say is, who says they are even lolling for milk?

        We’re always talking sex :-)

    It makes sense that if you want children, our clocks are ticking…tick…tick…tick. Guys don’t have that same issue so they may not have the same motivation to get married within a certain time frame. College is a good place to meet guys that share similar interests. Could it have been put better? Of course. But I think Patton had some good points and missed the mark on others.

      Jennifer, I agree with you. Great point – it could have been put better. The archaic phrase, “buying the cow” makes me cringe.

    While I agreed with the article in one or two places, overall it was very ’50s’ in its outlook. A big sigh over what sometimes feels like 2 big steps backwards!

      Sure – it’s the phrase – “buying the cow.” It’s important advice to evaluate in 2014. So much has changed (favorably for women and men) since the 1950’s.
