I think you should remind your Mom that you are an adult with a stable career and that the idea of an old Maid/ old hag hearkens back to an era when women had no responsible way to earn their own living.
Then tell her that when you find a husband he will be your equal, and you will marry for love.
At 70+ what do you mean by would be? lol
what does that mean BB? the monkey thing!
*holds hand* we are gathered here........
may i..? *join*
Don't settle, you'll regret it.
tell your mom its 2013 not 1953, women are no longer obligated to get married.
Moms are great aren't they? Something tells me she wants to make sure you do not drag your feet and wait until you are beyond child bearing days to find someone to marry. Don't rush into anything of course, but don't let good ones get away for trival details too, right?
well said :)
has she considered youd be more prosperous and productive without children?
Given that your profile says 70+...lol Tell mom to relax
My aunt should read all the answers in this question. She is the one been nagging me about getting married! :/
But you could be a happier old hag then a married old hag
I wonder, has your mom ever been wrong before?
In your picture you're clearly not 70+... Ignore your mom. Marriage isn't for everyone. You'll marry when the time is right. Enjoy being free right now.
I think it's time for an EP wedding! Got anyone picked out? :)
A lot of married women are old hags as well.....!!!!! Just do everything your way.
Do you live with her? Are you self supporting? I wouldn't worry about it. Women today have choices. That is what feminism is all about, isn't it?
She said this to a 70+ year old woman??? LOL!
Tell her that married or not you will get old...
Awwww, no way can you turn into an old hag - is she also one who wants grand-babies really badly? lol :)
and im sure in the pre 1900s anyone in their 20s would be an old maid or male equivalent for not being married and having had 5-6 children
Then you can stir a big black cauldron and recite Shakespeare! Noting wrong with that :D!
Who made your mom a prophet? There are a lot of beautiful women who've never married and are still beautiful.
