Telling young women that they should choose a husband while in college because you can't swing a backpack there without hitting a guy is like wanting babies to pick a car when they're infants simply because at no other time in their lives will so many people hand them car keys to play with.
You have to complete yourself, is what I learned. And if you do, you may find that a husband isn't all that necessary. I regret not having one when the car gets cranky or the toilet backs up or something but otherwise... nah. I'm good.
At the age of 22, if a woman has a college degree, but no husband OR child, her chance of dying alone increases to approximately 87%. If by 30, this woman still hasn't managed to land a man, she might as well kill herself. I mean, seriously.
By having more experiences with different partners, young women can make more informed choices about what they want from a romantic partner. Choosing a husband later may be especially beneficial because most young people have yet to fully form their own identities.
