Is it time we put aside Cinderalla et al. and find more modern fairy tales that reflect on the difficulties facing women in our time? That its probably not the best idea to wait around for Mr. Right to sweep you away and meet your every need forever?


I don't much care if a woman decides she wants to be

Many would consider engineering to be a relatively low paying field, but you chose it anyway.

Hard to call a field that earned me an upper middle class salary all on my own low paying but if it's low paying to you, then go make more.


My point is my future is secure.

<engineering pension>


Is this an actual pension or a 401k because I for one am glad that I am not depending on a traditional pension because they seem to be disappearing.
