Some Women Find Easily-Confidence A 50-year-old Career woman who has never been married writes: "I notice in the papers that older people are continually marrying . . . bald-headed grandfathers and white haired grandmothers, some of them marrying for the third time. "And yet we women who have never been married just sit and wait for someone to come along, and no one ever does. . "Why is it that the person who has married once can so easily marry again, while we who didn't find a husband when we were young still can't find one when we are older? "I've never seen this question answered, so would you try to answer it for me and all the other unmarried women who get by passed by old er men looking for a second wife?" Perhaps the reason is that by 40 or 50 the woman who has never married loses all faith in her ability to get a husband. Whereas, the woman who has managed to get ane husband never doubts for a moment tht she could get another. That may be the main difference For men not like women who are sure of themselves and of their attractiveness to men, but the woman who is sure of herself doesn't sit around and wait for a man to find her. She goes out looking. In your own letter you say ttaat , the kind of work you have done all of your life has never brought you in contact with marriageable men. A divorcee or widow who wanted a husband would have quickly seized up the lack of matrimonial opportunity in such a job and quit it promptly. She wouldn't have hoped against Husbands the Key?
