Tick-Tock: The fabled biological clock

Me: I don’t want children.
Recent date: What if you meet the right guy?
Me: Are you serious? That’s ridiculous. I wanted my tubes tied 10 years ago.

Guess what? Many 40 year-old-women CHOOSE not to marry OR have children. If <e Ripley’s Believe It or Not still aired, I’d certainly be the freaky side show on there.
Another guy told me it was an anomaly [my word choice, not his] to meet a 40-year-old woman who’d never been married and had not children. How ignorant and sexist is that?

A guy on twitter said: “I think is it a shift in the environment and how women are being brought up. This is a good shift IMO, and becoming less rare.”

Stats from the Alternatives to Marriage Project:

• There are nearly 96 million unmarried Americans, representing roughly 43% of the adult population (CPS, 2008).

• 46.6% of the unmarried population aged 18 and older are male, while 53.4% are female (CPS, 2008).

• Women (49.9% of the married population are women, compared to 56.4% of unmarried population) (ACS, 2005-2007).

Published in the July edition of Personality and Individual Differences, are the results of a study on older women and fertility. The study determined women age 27-45 have a heightened sex drive in response to their dwindling fertility. It’s considered to be a sexual peak and not necessarily a desire to have children. I believe it. I want sex more than ever now.

CELEBS: That f-ing biological clock

Can we PLEASE leave Renee Zellweger alone?

Here’s US Weekly pitting the two women against each other in their “quest” for Bradley Cooper:

I realize I’m writing about it hear but no publicists will even deal with my site because I don’t get enough readers and apparently I’m not a very good critic/ writer.

Showbiz Spy announces engagement of Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper [both have had very brief marriages to Kenny Chesney and Jennifer Esposito respectively].

Showbiz Spy says:

Renee knows her biological clock is ticking and she’s desperate to settle down and have a family. She has told Bradley in no uncertain terms that if he doesn’t agree to raise a child with her, she sees no future for them as a couple. Renee is even prepared to adopt if she isn’t able to get pregnant.

Why does anyone have to be married or get married to have a child [see Halle Berry, Madonna and Sandra Bullock]? I’m SO tired of the biological clock. I’ve NEVER heard it ticking and I’m 37 or so.

Also, Renee is an extremely talented actress and I’m tired of her being portrayed as desperate to marry and also people saying poor Renee– why is she single? why can’t she make any relationship work? People might be jealous of her dating record– Jim Carrey, Jack White, John Krasinski, Paul McCartney [oh and read this 2007 Daily Mail piece about a desperate Renee], MSNBC’s Dan Abrams etc.

Or perhaps, Renee just hasn’t found her match yet.
