When my wife and I were about to get married, there were many voices that cautioned her against it.
They weren’t against me, per se. They were against her marrying without a college degree. Why? Over and over again, the reason was, “You never know what might happen.”
Translation: “You might marry a louse.”
If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times: Why should young women make sure they get a college education? In case they marry a rotter. A bum. A lowlife. A dirt ball.
Young women should hedge their bets. They should protect themselves. They should start their married lives assuming that things will probably not work out. They should assume that their husbands will eventually leave them. But, never fear, ladies. If you have a college education, you don’t need a man. You can take care of yourself when he bugs out.
Having a college education has become the welfare system of upper middle class women.
The welfare system in America has allowed fathers to sire children and then leave the home. The women and children are cared for. They have what a husband and father normally provides. They have food to eat and a roof over their heads. But they don’t need a man.
So, which comes first, the chicken of welfare or the rotten egg of irresponsible men?
Or, which comes first, the chicken of a college degree for every young woman, or the rotten egg of unfaithful husbands and fathers?
