This lesson (even years after no longer being in YW) upsets me. We should be teaching our girls to seek out independence, education, and other incredible activities to better themselves! There is such a push for marriage (and always homemaking) that it makes me sick. I personally think they should write in a story of a woman who didn’t get her education and got married and then had to fend for herself. They should also write about someone like my college professor who went to school, served a mission, went to more school, and eventually got married in her mid-30s and is thriving. She rocks and she is the kind of role model i want my future girls to follow.
