Good news, single women over 40!
Your chances of getting married have been promoted from less than the chance of being harmed by terrorists to less than the chance of becoming Secretary of State or Speaker of the House.
They may even be greater than being on a plane that hits a cluster of birds and plunges into the Hudson River and being rescued while waiting on the wings.
So don't give up hope.
Of course thanks to prenuptials, marriage no longer represents the economic security it once did. (Until the second wife, that is.)
Thanks to "and-baby-makes-two" parenting, a mother without a marriage is less the social pariah as a fish without a bicycle to quote Gloria Steinem.
But for millions of women raised on Bride magazine and Barbie brides whose brains' still hold the concept of "old maid" (as do their dads')--descent into the won't marry demographic is deflating.
