Gosh, I hope you weren't referring to me as a feminazi.
I love you all, and I think we need to stop ripping each other to pieces for no good reason.
This whole marriage issue is really silly. Yes, congratulations to those who found a spouse and are happily married. Many, many happy and blessed years!
However, many folks - women and men - remain single simply because the "right" person hasn't come along. "Right" isn't based on their bankroll, or their height, or even how they look.
Standards are used to weed out unlikely candidates. They are a filter. If you love skiing, it would behoove you to find a spouse who skis. If you love art, it would be great to have a partner who loves it, too. It's not all about money and greed as has been stated in this thread.
The most important thing is that we are CONTENT in whatever "situation" we find ourselves in, at the moment - be it with a spouse, or on our own.
I'm not sure what Sauron expects from single women...that we should just melt into a puddle of tears and wallow in abject misery for finding ourselves to be without a man, or that we should feel like absolute losers. He's ridiculed our careers, assumed we must all be ugly, and that we work in Human Resources. That's just plain silly.
My belief is that everyone should be happy with what they do have....and rejoice in the blessing that God has bestowed upon them...and instead of wallowing in self pity...go out and make their world a better place.
If you are wallowing....that means you are not out "doing"...because if you are "doing" than you are too busy to wallow.
