Princeton Mom Writes Letter Urging Female Students to Find a Husband Before They Graduate

Forget Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg's message to women on leaning in, Patton says.
After touting her older son’s “good judgment
and great fortune to marry a classmate of his,” she writes, “My younger son is a junior and the universe of women he can marry is limitless. Men regularly marry women who are younger, less intelligent, less educated. It’s amazing how forgiving men can be about a woman’s lack of erudition, if she is exceptionally pretty.”
Her advice? “Smart women can’t (shouldn’t) marry men who aren’t at least their intellectual equal. As Princeton women, we have almost priced ourselves out of the market. There is a very limited population of men who are as smart or smarter than we are. ... You will never again be surrounded by this concentration of men who are worthy of you.”
