An interesting and amusing article in the New English Review on bachelorhood and the pursuit of the life of the mind. The author suggests women in the modern world are more adaptable to being single because they form deeper relationships and are “not haunting discotheques in a vain attempt to hook up with 19-year-old bimbos”.
I think they call them clubs now. The final lines of this essay reminded me of another recent post of mine. Seems like one of the main rationales for marriage and lifetime union is so someone is there to nag you on your death bed. Important point, n’est pas?
