3 mysterious ducks - carved in Ipoh, polished elsewhere and now back in 'Truly Asia' with our own propaganda on how the world should work.
Men who are single in 30 are still enjoying their life because a "Man's life begins at 40" whereby for a women who reached the tender age of 30.. it is their desperate time to find a "husband" if they are deemed incapable of sustaining their own career and financial situation. So, for you single ladies at 30... too darn bad !!!
don't think that that was a fair statement. there r plenty of women in their 30's who are doing very well in their careers, thank u very much. Wake up! The ratio of women to men in universities is 70:30. How can these women be INCAPABLE of sustaining their careers? I don't mean to slander MEN but please give credit to the many women out there, whether they r high-flyers or homemakers. Some women simply choose to be single because it's difficult to find their match. The same can be said for a man. And for the record, the motive of finding a husband, is not to be financially more sound, it is to SHARE one's LIFE with someone you love. Capeesh?!
I don't think the original post was a fair statement. They are many men at the age of 30s who are not losers. Maybe majority of Malaysian men are losers.. but not most of them. I am not too familiar of the statistics of women who goes to college, but what I am more concern is what does these women do after college? Given their well being and their "education", how many of the percentage of women do seek out their careers rather than getting married to a "rich" man? As for finding the right person to marry, there is no such curtailing details as living with the person for "life". If that was so true, there wouldn't be any of the social issues as we are facing these days and age.
So an unfair post deserves an unfair comment? Maybe, but I'd rather try to be fair (note: Since I did not write the post). Yes, i agree that there are women who marry men for their money. But let's not forget the men who live off women as well. My point was that we need not assume that only the women are doing this, men do too. You asked for the percentage of women who seek a career after university, I don't know that but do you yourself know if it's indeed a small percentage? Do you really know more women who are not seeking a career as opposed to those who are? And you would know too that many women (and men) give up their careers to look after the kids. It's not a total waste you know for someone educated to do this, if anything the kids will benefit from such parents. I don't see why ppl who choose to shd get a bad rep. You're worried abt women who don't seek a career after receiving a sound education, what about men who don't? My statement was to SHARE one's life with another person, i don't mean it as LIVING with a person for life. 2 entirely different concept i'd say. I don't believe that our social ills purely stems from not being able to find the right person to marry, if that is what you mean. in retrospect, if you look back to the post, it was an open-ended statement as the author wrote "Look around you ... is it true?" Appreciate your comment though. Really got me thinking.
