Mark Regnerus, do you really think I should be married now?  Eff you.

“So while many young Americans mark their days in the usual ways — by hitting the clubs, incessantly checking Facebook, Twittering their latest love interest and obsessing about their poor job prospects or how to get into graduate school — my applause goes out to those among them who’ve figured out that the proverb was right. One of those is Jennifer, a 23-year-old former student of mine. She’s getting married this fall. It wasn’t religion that made her do it. It wasn’t fear of being alone. It was simply affection. She met Jake while still in college and decided that there was no point in barhopping through her 20s. Her friends balked. She stood firm. Now they’re bridesmaids”

Oh wow, it’s SO HORRIBLE that I’m not married at 25.

A signing bus driver is  leading the way toward my dream of strangers breaking out in dance and song randomly in public.

Obvi the counter protest at Whitman was far better than the protest itself.

    Coming from a small town + still dating (and now living with) my high school sweet heart = bombardment of “when are you two getting married?” questions. Uhhh… not for a long time. And I’m almost 23!

    I have friends from high school who have gotten married already and all of their photos look like prom with a church and a cake. *Shutter*. What’s the rush?

    Speaking of breaking out in song and dance spontaneously, you must’ve seen this, right? It’s awesome

    To all the ladies,

    Sorry to hear your market value is in decline. I happen to disagree. Let me know if you want to borrow some of mine. It seems us men will have plenty to spare in the coming years.

    Lauren: “prom with a church and a cake” = best phrase ever. I laughed out loud when I read that one!
    Jerome: Yes, love it, had to watch it again.
    Alex NJ: Go get ’em!
