Did I over-love? Did I want their road to be so smooth, so flat and effortless that I ran ahead filling in the pot holes before they hit them? Am I in fact, Golden Retriever Mom?

Beverly Wettenstein

How many men and women are ready to commit to marriage at 21? Remember, the only time you can change a man is when he's in diapers. The Princeton mom's retro rhetoric is reminiscent of the "ring by spring" mandate for coeds to get engaged by graduation.
