Suzanne discusses the fallout of the four lies our culture tells women, which represent Part One of Suzanne’s new book, How to Get Hitched (and Stay Hitched): A 12-Step Program for Marriage-Minded Women.
1:40 The Four Lies:
– Marriage + Motherhood = Jail
– Women should never depend on a man
– Sex is just sex
– Career success will and should define them
1:50 The women who fell for these lies are now dealing with the fallout (They either can’t find a marriageable man or they do find one and are unable to have children the natural way or stay home with their children)
2:30 Feminists want women in the workforce so they can push their political agenda of government sponsored day care and paid leave. This is not what most women want!
3:10 The birth rate is the lowest it has been in a century
4:30 There’s so much more than money when it comes to mapping out a life that works
5:30 Follow the man’s career path because he is going to end up feeding the family, if only temporarily
6:00 Stop moving through the world like your body and life will be the same as a man’s
7:10 Put marriage and motherhood at the center of your life and build everything else around that
7:50 Marriage doesn’t change things as much as having a baby does
8:30 Women do not become more “eligible” with age
9:00 Plan ahead, and be flexible!
