Why are women over 40 so desperate to get married?Page 26 of 34    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34)
of course the women who are marriage freaks will not join this and those who are not will so it`s one sided but i agree with the guy. i have met quite a few who are on a marriage mission and get upset when they find out i have no interest in such a thing. as many have recommended i try not to date that type but few come with warning labels so on to the next.

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.

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 do not think that this is necessarily true....Women in my age bracket late 40's and early 50's that I know. Are Not eager to get married again....I think what we are looking for is a Nice stable relationship. This does not always mean marriage. We have been there done that, like you say having babies are NOT an issue now..lol
Hell no, most of us have already raised our kids, and do not want to start over again!.
When I say stable...monogamous ( for health concerns ) stable in his emotions,
able to be Flexible, agreeable to work together on nurturing a loving relationship.

For the person who posted this topic, did these women come right out and tell you that they were looking for marriage, or did you just assume thats what they wanted???

I personally do not know if I would ever get married again..its going to take one heck of a solid/decent guy to make me change my mind...lol.....but it would be nice to have that nice, stable relationship.

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!

You sure they were over forty?

Most women I know dont want to go down that route again, they just want a good friend, a lover a pal to share life with, both with their own lives and both wanting to go home every so often.

Maybe it is in your profile you are looking for something long term and they are reading it there? Just an idea but does seem odd they all want to marry you after one meeting

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)

Hi. I read your opinion..... I think different... I'm 40... Most of my friends are like me and we don't want to get married again..I'm got divorce 10 years ago, I got a lot of friends and a lot of good experiences...beside....When you get a husband..Idon't know what it happens but everything changes.... also you talk about biological clock ... come on!!!! we don't need a husband in order to have a baby.....ok.... It's just my opinion.

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.
