Article To Read: The Real Reason Twentysomething Women Are Worried

When I read this article on nymag.com a couple of days ago I thought “this is exactly what I’m going through right now”. This article is about my live! It’s about being young and having a career, but also wanting to ‘have it all’ by getting married and having a baby some day.

In the article:

"Most of us aren’t scrambling to lock down boyfriends by age 25 — we’re busy building our careers. These days college women tell reporters that they prefer hookups because being coupled up too young interferes with your professional trajectory. Early marriage is good for men, who do better at work and report higher satisfaction if they get hitched in their mid-twenties. That isn’t the case for women, who earn more if they marry later and for whom marital status plays a smaller role in determining their happiness. There’s a reason many women put  ”marriage/first kid” in the early thirties section of their timeline: They know they’ll need their twenties to maximize their career prospects and self-exploration because there’s a good chance that after they have kids, these things will fall by the wayside.

What are your thoughts on this?
