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

One concerned mother penned a letter to female students at Princeton University, where her son currently attends, offering them some dating advice. Susan A. Patton, who is also a graduate of Princeton, is stirring up controversy with her message which is published in "The Daily Princetonian."

Megyn Kelly Interview: Susan Patton Defends Her Princeton Op-Ed

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.”

Is Patton’s message archaic? To hear more, watch the video below and tell us what you think!
