It seem today that women have begun to obsess about getting a husband. Instead of getting to know themselves, their careers, their lives

I think many woman have never taken the time to actually find themselves so therefore they don't know the wonderful feeling of actually being a lone for a period of time and being independent without a man by their side. Some woman just crave the coupled life. I have friends that go both ways, I have some that are perfectly content with being single, some that are happy dating, and some that are on a mission to find a husband. Some people have a fear of being alone and that causes them to have the contstant need of a boyfriend/husband. I myself haven't been single in quite some years though I make sure to keep my independence while Im in a relationship.

I also think that it has a good deal with growing old alone. Also, as a woman becomes older she has that biological clock ticking and wants to find a husband to father her children. A lot of women dream of the family life, husband, children, picket fence, dog, house..etc. As they become older they may feel pressured to achieve these things before the time has passed to have children. I think procreation is a natural desire in a lot of men and women. Quite a few men desire the same things as women. The hard part is finding the right person that you want to spend the rest of your life with.

I was never like that, but then again I wasn't like most little girls that fantasized about their wedding day. I fantasized about other things like a cool car or job. I think it's just that-a fantasy for many women. They think their lives will be complete once that ring is on. They are love with the idea of being in love. I know that marriage is hard work, so I didn't take it lightly at all. I really didn't ever picture myself being married at all either, I thought I'd work travelling the country, but plans always change when you fall in love!

I think that it is bred into our genetic code. From the earliest times women have been responsible for carrying on the human race. Because it is better to do that with the help of a spouse it seems realistic that we look for someone to be the father of our children - our helpmates. If someone chooses to be complete in and of themselves with a career and friends that is their choice, but no one should be condemned for wanting the love and companionship of a good man.
