Hello. First, congratulations on joining the "sorority" of motherhood. (I recently heard about the news from a former colleague of ours.) It's a gift from God that will ultimately be a part of your legacy ... and it's the best birthday present one can wish for.With that being said, I disagree with your remarks in the third and fourth paragraphs of your HuffPost piece. Marriage and motherhood aren't for everyone, and this is a conclusion I reached when I was a teenager (I'm 33 now). Based on your piece -- especially the ninth paragraph -- I'm cursed to be an old maid (spinster) because I'm in no rush to walk down the aisle. This is something I'd expect to hear from my Baby Boomer mom, not a fellow member of Generation X.Five, ten, even twenty years from now, I may get the itch to become a wife and mother; if so, it will be by choice, not under pressure. (There are already too many people who travel down that road for the wrong reasons.) As you alluded to "whitemerlot," this subject calls for in-depth thinking on the individual's part.
