i believe in love...but at the moment love sucks.

i always liked this quote from a xena ep:  "love is a trick that nature plays on you to get you to reproduce."

Do the guys who responded see themselves getting engaged or even married while in law school?

And ladies, would you accept a proposal from a serious S.O. if it came while you were in law school? Aren't there some women who feel they "have" to be married by age 30?

Def not one of those women that must be married by 30. Honestly, no, I dont think I would accept the proposal.  If he's the man for me, he'd klnow to wait until at least my last exam
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality...  I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word - -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King

We're smart enough not to buy into the oldest myth running: love.

I think folks should wait until they are at least 30 before getting married.  You really dont know what you want in a relationship until then and it gives you an opportunity to figure it all out.

I cant even think about a marriage proposal in law school or even dating for that matter.  Where does the time come from to actually be in a relationship in law school?
Just accept that fact that I am better than you.

We believe in love. We love green slips of currency, the stock market, and frozen concentrated orange juice!
Money is everything.

I totally disagree.  I know plenty of people who got married in their 20s who are still married.  I also know plenty of people who got married in their 30s who are divorced.  I think it's a little silly to set an arbitrary age at which all of a sudden you become wise.  Some people know what they want fairly early and find it early.  Some people know what they want early but find it later on.  And some people never know what they want out of a relationship!

That said, my arbitary cutoff 'age' would be post college graduation.  Once they're out of my house and off my dime they're free to live life as they choose!

i disagree with the bolded...some ppl know what they want and are mature enough to handle marriage at a younger age.  now i'm not saying to get married at 19/20 but waiting til at least 30 seems a bit extreme

To all who disagree with my comment about waiting until at least 30 to get married...

#1.  Usually people under the age of 30 always tend to disagree with this statement.  I encourage you to re-visit this thought once you hit your early 30's. (No I am not 30 yet but I grew up pretty fast so technically I am about 35)

#2.  To say that waiting until 30 is extreme once again proves my point.  30 is not ancient and no there is not a stroke of wisdom that hits you on your 30th birthday (I am assuming), it is simply a good reference point.  By the age of 30, people usually have a better perception of who they are and they are a bit more stable in their career and hopefully their finances.

#3.  I am definitely not saying that it is not possible to find that special someone at any moment or point in your life.  All I am saying is that waiting a little bit longer and getting to know yourself a little better doesn't hurt.

#4.  There will always be exceptions to the rule.  Just like you may know several people that got married in their twenties and are still together and several that got married in their thirties and divorced, I am pretty sure that I can go tit for tat with you on those stats (was not trying to rhyme).
Just accept that fact that I am better than you.
