Description
The "Princeton mom" who caused a stir with her controversial letter to the Daily Princetonian offering advice to young women at Princeton about marrying early delivers more unvarnished truths in this smart, straightforward, and witty book of life lessons.
You're single and you know what you want in your life. And if your dreams include getting married and having children, this fresh new approach to finding the right one at the right time shows the way to make those dreams a reality.
A graduate of one of the first classes of women at Princeton University, Susan Patton has heard smart young women admit they aspire to marriage and motherhood but have no model for pursuing those goals; reflecting on the choices she made in her early twenties, she's boldly turned the tables on our "career first" conditioning and suggests that you seek out the golden opportunities right in front of you, right now.
In Marry Smart, she shares the wisdom of her experience with warmth, humor, and very straight talk. But this is not your mother's dating guide-- Marry Smart celebrates the vital achievements of traditional marriage and motherhood, and gives you the essential life strategies that no one's talking about, including how to:
- strike while the greatest number of single young men is available to you
- attract a man who is your intellectual and emotional equal
- date to find a mate--and how to spot a diamond in the rough
- find total satisfaction in your roles as a wife and mother
Whether or not you are in college, whether your future plans are clear or still undecided, Marry Smart is a must-read for all young women who want to get the most out of love and life.
