The comment of the day from 04/05 is from user ravensgrin36 who wrote this insightful thought on the article, "Why Am I Still Single":

I think it's a good thing that more and more women aren't settling. Consider the sitcoms for a second ... what do they portray? A beautiful, stick-thin, intelligent woman married to an average joe. Why? Why does my husband have to be some blob on the couch while I'm popping out kids, raising children and running the household?

The truth of the matter is that husbands aren't necessary anymore. Marriage isn't necessary.

Women shouldn't have to feel that pressure they felt in the 50s. You know, the pressure to get married to whomever comes along just to have a husband and to "fit in" to normal society. Women want to stretch and grow. They want to advance in their careers. They want to travel and broaden their horizons. They don't want to be saddled down with brats while hubby goes out to play golf with his coworkers.

Marriage isn't evil, but it is a commitment, so find somebody who suits you. Find your soulmate. Lose the blob on the couch who thinks a woman's place is barefoot in the kitchen ... devoid of any hopes and aspirations save for her weekly scrapbooking club.

Take back your power, ladies. Enjoy your life. Travel the world. Enjoy the company of your friends and family. Take pride in yourself and do what you love to do. And if you want a man in your life, let him in as your partner, not your albatross.
