i can't speak for them...i have no idea why they want to get married. At that age it';s not going to be to have kids, not likely. I guess because they don't want to live alone or die alone and don't have to 'look' anymore. But as far as i'm concerned...yech. No thanks!

For me, I am not desperate, but I do not want to die alone or spend the rest of my life alone. I loved being married. And would not waste my time with a live in. I don't believe in that.

I know for me...marriage isnt something I plan on doing for a while. Yes I loved being married, and I dream tat one day I will find that man who will just make me thinkabout doing it all ovr again, but its going to take one helluva man ! I guess some women maybe do it because they just dont like being alone and lonely. Some fo money issues maybe ? I dont know. I think you have to reallllly get to know someone for quite a while before you could even start thinking along those lines, but thats just my opinion.

I don't even know if I would ever marry again. I have been married twice in my lifetime. One was short, 2 years and the other was 12 years. I don't even know if I could answer the question " would you marry me?" I is kind of scary to even consider. The man would have to be very special and important to me. He would also have to be very much in love to want that. I would have to be the same. I have not even thought of saying the L word to anyone in a long time. I believe the last time was several years ago. The last guy I dated which was last month was to young for me and I know it would have never worked out. I guess there are just women out there who need to think that someone wants to marry them and they are afraid of being alone. Being alone isn't all that bad. You can do whatever you want and no one is going to tell you that you can't.

Who says women over 40 are desperate to get married? I'm not so sure I want to get married again. I have a lot more financial perks not being married. I get way more back on my income taxes, I don't have to budget for his needs, I don't have to ask anyone's permission to spend my own money, and I don't have credit card debt. Now, don't get me wrong. I would love to find a partner to love me and be loved by me...I'm just not sure that would result in marriage. Who knows what the future holds but I know that I'm not rushing to unite in marriage because if I get married again....it will be for the rest of my life. I don't want to make any more mistakes in that area of my life.

Who are these women you are referring to that want so desperately to get married? Can you provide any details?? I think you may be dreaming. Most women I know over 40 don't care to get or even be married. We know we don't need a piece of paper to tell us who we love.

PEOPLE are desperate for security...no matter what gender! However, I am secure within myself!

Nice sense of humor, esap! I don't know where OP is meeting these "desperate" women, but someday he may wish he could find one!

Wow, I can't say that I know anyone in my age group that WANTS to get married again, including me. The trick now is to separate the ones who want no commitment at all from what I and most others I know are looking for - a really terrific, long term relationship. That's what really hard to find ----

I know - I never jumped into marriage like everyone else and I'm still patiently waiting for the right one. I don't want to start screwing things up now so a man would have to near walk on water to convince me he's the right one.

Well I guess it all boils down to - if the guy is also over 40, chances are he'll die first and we'll inherit his estate. What's wrong with that?

They have no reason to get upset if you tell them you do not want to get married from the get go. If they get upset later on after they assumed you were going to change your mind, then they are the ones who did not realize that a leopard rarely changes his spots. Honestly is the best policy here, and believing what someone says as the truth.

Some are.
Some are not.

Some are afraid of dying alone.
Some aren't.

Never good to generalize.

One word describes the horror entertained by the single female's aging mind -

CATS

Well just call us crazy cat ladies, cause some of us have room in our lives for a cat or two and a man who also loves cats.

I'm over 40 and I'm not desperate to get married.
I don't even know anyone over 40 who is single that is desperate to get married.
I wouldn't mind finding someone who wouldn't mind marrying me though.
I think there's a difference. I don't need to be married...but it's nice to know
someone WOULD marry me.
I really think a lot of posters are stuck in time warps here.
I read stuff on here about women DESPERATE to get married, women looking for
WHITE KNIGHTS, women needing men for money, men looking for women
that look like strippers but act like Donna Reed ...and I think where the heck ARE
these people?
