DeepThroat on marriage, dating, and shidduchim:
"People want to make it seem like there's only one way to [get married], and if you do it any other way you'll be ostracized... [But] it's one of those things, once you get married, nobody cares how you did it."
(via RD) Erica Jong on advice:
"Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't."
A young teenage boy with a married brother who is expecting his second child telling Erachet's teenage sister:
"I learned from my brother not to get married before I can support myself."
Amen to all three.


  1. I love the first two. The last one sounds like learning from example -- to do the opposite.

  2. We all have our own way and should do what is right for ourself in finding our beshert

  3. What about people who commit to a long-term education process? People going to medical school, PhD programs, etc. - do you think they should also wait to get married/have kids till they get out of residency, etc.?
