Day 9: Don’t Play Musical Chairs

DAY9edited

“Dating for me in my twenties was like this musical-chairs thing. Everybody was running around and having fun. Then I hit thirty and it was like the music stopped and everybody started sitting down. I didn’t want to be the only one without a chair. Sometimes I think I married my husband just because he was the closest chair to me at thirty. Sometimes I think I should have waited for someone who might be a better partner, and maybe I should have, but that seemed risky. What I really wish I’d done is thought more about marriage sooner. Like when I was in my twenties.” – Alex, Meg Jay’s patient as discussed in The Defining Decade
