I was married at 25, she was born by 27. Despite avoiding being married earlier...now in my early 40's...I wish I had waited until 30, or even 35. I certainly knew I was different at 25 than 18. I'd been in the US Army, lived abroad, traveled the US some, and got thru college. Well, ok, I finished last semister married to her mother.
My wife and I talk about it a lot - we are better prepared now than we were then. We don't want to start over now, but both wish we had waited, done more either alone or together. Our daughter was born 2 years into our marriage and our life pretty much stopped there. Well, at least the grand trips, the big life-risks, the dreams took second place to the necessary realities of being young and having a small family.
We love our kids, but as each generation wants their kids to have it better - we are SO THANKFUL that this book came to be. It communicates so well that you have basically one time to be young and to really make sure you consider your whole life before rushing down the aisle.
Our daughter ended up asking us tons of questions - some weren't easy to answer - and we discussed some parts of this book for months. It's still a topic of conversation a times. The gift card is a minor investment, the book's message she absorbed is priceless. What she does in her life is up to her...but at least she has been presented some reasons for enjoying her young and single days.
I defiately agree that a person (regardless of age or gender) should get their act together before making the ultimate contract with another person, but to say they aren't ready just because they arent 30 is simply ludicrous.
Three stars because the 10 Keys offer some very good advice, but not five because the whole thing seemed too narrow minded. Given the choice I'd probably read it again
Now think about the power we have to share such innovative and compelling wisdom with our daughters, nieces, and friends. Get this book into
the hands of every young woman you know! It is a step by step guide to living your best life right here, right now. I highly recommend it!

Totally fabulous. Full of excellent information for women on how to live well. I am giving it to the daughter of a friend who just started college.Published 9 months ago by arlene ahmadbedohave
The whole premise of this book is dangerously wrong. It is another misleading feminist-based book, which, like similar books in the past, may cause more harm than good. Read morePublished on May 2, 2013 by DBO
I think this book has some good advice. There are helpful lessons in the stories. Nothing I'd use as die-hard rules. Read morePublished on March 30, 2011 by ReviewerMouse
A friend bought me this book and it completely changed how I viewed "staring down the barrel" of 30 as a single woman. Read morePublished on December 20, 2010 by J. Simonton
This is a very useful book that I would recommend to any single woman. However, the only quibble I have is with the authors' insistence that women should not marry until after 30. Read morePublished on November 8, 2010 by Melissa Ann Conroy
After reading Eat Pray LOVE I already felt like I read this book but, it also made myself realize I am pretty independent young woman in her twentys. Read morePublished on August 11, 2010 by Jaclyn
