Women college students should consider how they will support their children, should they come to be single mothers. Fortunately I had a professor who said to me when I graduated from college, “Someday you may have to work.” He suggested I take a master’s degree in education as well as history so I could be a teacher in any state.
I followed his advice, and after 20 years of marriage found myself with six children to provide for. I was able to teach in both Florida and California, always having the same schedule as my children in regards to hours and vacations, etc. So I was always available to them and was successful in getting all through college. Now I’m retired, and they are enjoying their lives as I did mine.
So young ladies, be mindful that you may someday be a single working mother. Be prepared for this circumstance the best possible way.
