    Given what the overwhelming negative reactions have been to this article, I am truly amazed that you would stoop so low as to reprint this garbage under your by-line. You should be ashamed!

    The economy right now is really bad and the only thing that helped me financially is trading. If you want to learn how to trade Google Superior Trading System.

    Perhaps if people stopped judging single women and making them feel "less than," this priority would shift to be more consistent with what women, individually, really want for themselves. Having said that, when women stop seeing marriage as the end, and the man as the means to that end, we‘d all be a lot better off. The status of being married is deemed so important that its secular function (ie. to memorialize a lifetime commitment to someone you love, or to create a legally recognized and more stable family unit) is diminished in the process of trying to achieve that standing regardless of the costs.
