1. I don't think it is a sign of a mental illness, just a reality check. Older women that desire motherhood have to do whatever it takes to get to that goal...and time is running out. 2. I think that older women have to 'fall in line' when it comes with their desire to be a wife and mom. I know from personal experiences in dating women well over 30 that marriage/child questions on a first or second date is a real downer!! But what choice does she really have?

I think everyone should be able to BE who they are - unless their behaviour is unacceptable to any part of society.

I am a weak atheist and an agnostic (no, they're no mutually exclusive), but I practice taoist philosophy. I don't believe there is an onjective meaning to life, but that doesn't mean life itself is meaningless. Rather, it opens the possibility of the individual creating their own purpose, if they so chose. With the knowledge that all we have is the here and now (although religious taoists may believe in reincarnation), the toaist focuses on experiencing the beauty and goodness of the world,...

IMHO heaven, hell, and earth are the same place. What, after all, is paradise? What knowledge do we have of it?

It's really difficult to determine what women are attracted to. True story: I was on the bus.

Sometimes the two concepts confused in this discussion (not this one specifically but this issue) is linguistic gender and biological sex. One cannot argue from the first to the second.

nikcara, You have more than one point in your post. I will try to address them, but I hope you can forgive me if I miss one or two. Do we have differing definitions of "Christian"? What is a Christian to you? Yes, Christians do differ on issues, but they differ usually because they've started from different points of view. They have different conclusions about the world to begin with, thus they have certain differences in their worldviews, which is part of the point that I made originally.

Unfortunately, these numbers and what they mean have become "normalized", in the sense put forward by Edward Herman in his book "Triumph of the Market". It can only be so, as capitalism panders to the uncontrolled greed and self-interest of the few. These statistics have to be accepted, normalized or else people would realize something is wrong and this is a threat to capitalist culture. And there is a method to all this as well. One of the cornerstones is to promote the banality of evil.
