They may be single, they may be age appropriate, but a good chunk of the men on campus still have baby formula on their breath.В  In fact, continuing research on brain development indicates that people are not fully matured until 25. Patton tells parents to encourage their daughters to make the best use of their time in college since they will never again be as young, as beautiful, as attractive to men, or as fertile. I’m an administrator at a public university and I have to tell you that I see very few of these kids that are ready for marriage at that age.
Although I am an older student on campus (and by I older I mean early 30s) and also married, I can say with certainty that MOST of the guys I’ve met are in no way ready for or have the ability to be a good partner in marriage.
I understand her point, but I think it’s silly to expend energy towards finding a husband versus getting an education. There are a few schools around my area where it is common knowledge that the girls attend either for a real degree or an MRS degree. As a mother of three daughters, it never occurred to me to coach them to be on the hunt for that perfect man the second they stepped foot on their college campus. Keep in mind that this advice is only for college-aged women since theВ fellows aren’t under the tick of a biological clock.
Even with science to back up this theory, I won’t assume that my daughter will be able to spot a keeper the moment she steps on a college campus.


Now parents are being called upon to instruct their daughters to use most of their energy angling for a spouse before all that pretty dries up.
When she's not helping parents avoid the college sneak up, you can find her writing for small business clients or chomping away at nonfiction books (and pistachios). I do believe that if a woman wants a husband (and biological children in a traditional marital setting), she has a certain timeline. I mused the same thing, I wonder if the author would feel differently if she had daughters. The author promises that she is not being provocative for the sake of it, but I’m sure she knew that her 75-25% ratio to life would be controversial. It’s a big enough transition from high school to college without the extra pressure of finding a man.
I however believe that if she ends up meeting her husband there, it would be an added bonus. Where Susan and I differ is on the ratio–75% on finding a spouse and 25% on professional development.
I graduated from college three years ago- didn’t meet my husband there, instead focused on getting my degree, making solid friendships, and landing a job.


I mean just encouraging your daughter to hunt for a man, is sending her a message that she’s not enough alone! That 75% sounds like Patton is saying more than just be open to the possibility of finding a husband while in college. I didn’t go into college with the idea of getting married anytime soon, I wound up meeting the man who would become my husband on my very first day of school and got married while I was still in college. But I did not go to college to find a husband, and when I did start dating him is wasn’t with plans to marry. I have plenty of friends who were having kids in their late thirties and forties, but I also have friends that struggled with fertility.
Sounds like a hook to get publicity for her books but it is as likely to turn readers away as intrigue them.
