Ladies: How Long Can You Wait for a man? by aloy/emeka: 5:47am On Oct 16, 2011
Ladies, if you wait till 40 and not yet married and there is still no man in the picture and all your eggs are frying due to age. Will you go ahead and have a baby as a single mom or harvest and freeze some of your eggs while you continue to wait or just do nothing and be waiting for a potential suitor to knock on your doors?.

Age 35-40 is  very critical in the lives of single women and this is when they are faced with daisy situations. What will you do if you happen to be in that condition?.

You may vote if you wish.

You need to update your biology books or article. With modern technology women in their 60's are having babies and many of them are naturally pregnant without artificial semination treatments.

For all young men who like chasing Grannies, WRAP IT UP or you will be on Maury Povich show.

Why am i irked?  

Although I've had my self righteous "pro feminism" rants on here  tongue
in reference to 'men's use only being for sp3rm donations'  cheesy cheesy
(which is true but also something i say to get a few laughs) i have to admit,
wanting a man so much that you'd wait before having a child. then when you are 40
and there is no man, so late in the game you result to artificial conception,
is senseless and defeated the whole purpose of your waiting.

You waited because you thought you'd find a good man, have a child for him,
and you two could raise the child together. But after waiting for 20 years you decide to
get pregger by way of sp3rm donor? ridiculous. the biological clock is ALWAYS ticking,
and hun it don't always pertain to child birth, but LIFE ITSELF. As in old age and death.
You are 40 by the time your child is a preteen you are approaching your 60s and you want
to risk raising a 'confused about life monster'  tongue grin by yourself as a senior citizen?!

but lets take it back 5 or 10 years,
when you get the child and you fulfill that need to be a woman by carrying for 9 months  tongue
what will you tell the baby when he or she asks you about da-da?  tongue

what are you gonna say? "oh mommy waited for the right man but she didn't get the right man
so she went to the doctor's office and screened potential matches so she could have you and that way
she won't be lonely!"  cheesy cheesy

oops! cheesy embarassed

I agree some ladies have chosen to live a life of abject solitude. Surely, that's an abnormal way of life for a human being to live; even lower animals crave a companion!

That's the problem and that's why some women ignore sperm banks and find themselves a handsome man who is very eager to score a "cheap" booty without condoms; that way he will end up knocking her up and men like that usually get mad when you tell them the news. But if a woman thinks a man is gonna agree to knocking her up merely by asking, well good luck.

Sex is overrated and SOME people are throwing toto and koko out in the street like government cheese.

It's crazy to pay for sperm when SOME men are throwing their Joysticks out like a few hungry chicks fighting over a piece of bread.

God is the giver of husbands and children. I would not want to give myself a husbands and a kid without him.

I will wait for God until he says yes. If he doesnt i will pray that i accept the situation.

It may be abnormal to you but that doesn't take away from the fact that they may actually be content with their life in that manner or that it posses an issue for them. Besides, companionship doesn't necessarily mean marriage.

That's true. Hundreds of couples are together for DECADES without a marriage license. The only difference is some countries are bent on marriage before shacking while other countries lenient on lifestyle freedom.

Having a baby at the age of 40 out of wedlock,is not a bad idea.
If the lady in question loves kids and is capable of caring for the child,i see no reason why she shouldn't go ahead with it.
But she should make sure she is doing it with a level headed guy.

I do not like any of the options , what about prince charming aka Mr right strolls in to Tiffany gets that platinum ring you have always wanted and ask you to get married to him , prostrates  50 times on wedding day just to ask for your beautiful hand in marriage.

Oh!  Speaking of divorce, I am not trying to start a tribal war but I understand why Yoruba fathers will take their daughters back if lives are at stake.

It falls under the "continue waiting " option. Very hard to catch prince charming after 40 tho. It will be a miracle.

That is incorrect people are marrying and remarrying all the time, some people meet thier soulmates at different stages of their lives.

I know some people who have just fallen hopelessly in love and they are in their 70s , who will think a 70 plus babe still gets toasted but it happens all the time, age 40 is a baby sef , everything depends on ones state of mind some people clock 40 and the just wait for death to happen cry cry cry cry cry

whenever she feels she can take care of kids, and whenever she believes that she doesn't need a man, i think its more advisable to procreate then! For me, it's better than dying alone  undecided undecided undecided

You must be a billionaire heiress and the man must be 60 years younger than you. No amount of viagra will wake a 112 yr old man from normal state to excited state.
