Why are women over 40 so desperate to get married?

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.

Lots of women are looking to date....Sometimes we can't find men who seem to want to date.

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?

Well I'm over 100 but my opinion still counts.

I guess I'd get married again, but I want separate houses this time around.

many times it is the men who are blatantly dishonest! they mention "love" first, they invite you into their homes and supposedly open themselves to you, but to them it's just part of the game ... to get cared for, to get laid, to get cooked for, and so on. then, when something (younger female, or a big-tits female, or whatever) comes along, suddenly you're the desperate one!

I don't even think the person who posted this is still reading the replies since it was originally posted two years ago - but- for whatever it's worth - I just turned 50 and I don't know anyone in my age group who is desperate to get married. All my friends and I are financially independent and have been so for years. We value a fun loving stable relationship but marriage at this point is not necessarily on our agenda. Now, I have met many men over 40 who are too eager to get married and find it odd that a woman is comfortable not getting married. So I have come to believe that the men want us to believe this myth when statistics show that it is they who become more lonely as they age!

I might be open to marriage more than most women my age since I have not been married. However, if I was desperate to get married I could have gotten married, and at this point in my life don't seek anything with desperation. (except chocolate, caffeine, and a few other things)

I would say I disagree OP. Most women I know over 40 do not want to get married again. Yes they may want a long term relationship. But married? No,I don't think so.

I don't know what women your talkin about but pretty much every woman I have met in their 40's is in no rush, most by that time know more of what they don't want as well as what they do want, and will not settle for anything less.

I'd agree. Me thinks the OP is wrong and lots of ladies 40+ aint in no rush. Good Lord man...I'm a gonna have to give one of em an ultimatim....marry me or....or...or..
wait one I have to think...marry me or I wont give you a back rub? Nah...uhm...er....?
Marry me or you won't know the sweet sugar lips I got...ouch that sounds too...sugary
dem diabetics might run.

Marry me or I won't have a pillow fight (let you win of course...) then throw you down on the bed and bite your neck (full moon habit...) No...that won't work...golly gee whiz. Uhm...there's gotta be a way...I know...meet someone, date them and don't ask? Treat em as great as could be...and get them to want to marry you first!

Yeah that's the ticket. But wait, what about if I'm afraid to marry them? Ok breathe in slow and deep... Well if I choose the right one and the right one chooses me
(no not the the Matrix "the One") then maybe we can take it real slow and enjoy our courtship...

Course we will have a hugging great time at the holidays!

Then maybe even live together... And when we want to ruin things, then get married

Ok I'm joking...I'm a romantic (sh! don't tell anyone) at heart.

I've found over the years, women that don't have financial stability or security are a lot more WANTING to get married as where women that are finacially stable or secure DO NOT wanna get married. I'm not saying that this is the case everytime but this seems to be the pattern.

Who cares? I'M in no rush to get married, until we've established that we love each other, have the same life goals, views about domestic life, finances and children.

For me I think that wanting to be married to someone I love is just a part of my moral fiber. I think growing with God as a focus in my life and the attitude and morals of my parents make me feel that intamcy should be associated with commitment and marriage. I was married for 27 years and although I don't want to be married again anytime soon, I know if I meet the right person, it will come into play for me, not only for the moral reasons, but financially it is better (IRS, insurance). I am fine finanacially, so that is not the issue at all. I know that I am probably old fashioned in my ideas and views (although I am no saint), but that is just what feels right for me.
