, The National Law Journal


A Princeton woman from the golden age of feminism is saying, "Here's what nobody is telling you: Find a husband on campus before you graduate." Well, that certainly beats the tired advice about networking!

    My first thought on Ms. Patton's advice was that her concept of a man's worthiness seems to exclude the most important ingredient for a happy marriage: the ability and willingness to contribute to the relationship. Brains and pedigree count for squat if your mate isn't wired to sacrifice for the team and bring his/her appetites home every night. Well, maybe they'll help with alimony...

    Ms. Patton married her ex-hubby with eyes open. Her post hoc rationalization that the marriage failed because he was somehow beneath her reeks of snobbery, denial, and vindictiveness. In a parallel universe, this same woman would be telling youngster not to fall for the Princeton charm and marry too early lest they miss out on discovering themselves.

    I guess the moral is to take the advice of failure with a grain of salt.
