It's up to the individual! There is no blanket answer to this question!
Shame on those who tell women trashy marriage is antiquated and outdated in
today's society. Shame on those who say women should only pursue higher
education, while abandoning marriage altogether. Women and men are
happier when in good marriages than they can ever be unmarried. This is
irrefutable fact. Any society which truly cares about the happiness of its
members will encourage them to marry. In order to be good marriage
partners, Women and men should as as they can possibly be. No one wants to
be married to Ann ignorant dolt.Let us hope that today's young
women will seek after both education and marriage. The future of society
depends upon it.
Women and men need to be prepared for the challenges that life throws at
everyone. A good education is enriching, strengthening and is an insurance
policy for a woman, no matter what her future holds.
College is the place to get an education. It is not a dating bureau. The woman
should focus her attention to her studies. Either single or married, the woman
should continue her study for her career path until she gets her degree. If
married, she should not start child-bearing until she has her degree.If a woman uses college as the way to get a mate, she is denying a place in
that college to someone who would have used it for what it really is intended --
Well, I'd agree with this, utterly. Since, in college, you notice all
aspects of emotions of your friends while studying. And, in addition, it's
the best time to investigate your partner in the best possible manner.
Your degree may get you nowhere; a good marriage will set you up for life. Choose a course that is useful, though, not one of these
"enriching" ones which you could do as well on your own or do better at
church. Learn that which you can use to create something valuable, whether
employed or not, or a useful vocational skill that is likely to remain in
demand. - Or go to work and save for a down payment on your first
Gildas,Finally, some sense...I've known people with
degrees make a wage no better than if they hadn't and I've known them
to be very successful. When I think of two of the most college-successful people
I know, the first thing that comes to mind is how their marriage fell apart and
how their children are affected. I know so many others in my generation who have
been divorced now. These people were taught better, yet still put school,
career, or something else first... while neglecting their faith, family, or
something else. They all agree on one thing... that focus left the family for
something else.The simple fact is, we have no guarantee's in
this life except for that of our God and the promises He makes if we keep His
commandments. If our homes are happy, we are happy. There is no reward worth
sacrificing your family for.I'd rather rely on God than a
degree. He knows I need food, shelter, shoes, a coat, etc. If it's a
degree, then so be it. If not, then so be it.
It is a fantastic time to find a husband, no doubt. No problem there…the
problem is dropping out of school thinking you've accomplished something.
You can go to college, meet your mate, get married AND get and education AND
graduate. You really can have it all in this case. I know hundreds of friends,
colleagues and former class-mates who have done just that. And most of them are
very happy - with those college days together being an important part of their
collective and combined memories and experiences. Anyone who tells you
otherwise probably has an agenda they are selling.
Dating, and marriage give motivation for completing college. Period!
