As a Mom of a 24 year old guy...and the home where all the guys and gals hang all summer, nothing spooks a guy more than to find out early on is the girl is husband hunting.

Then again a good chunk of these young women are not either. I've yet to see them have life direction. Ya, they have jobs, great start. Yet every last one of them are still at home not ready to leave the nest and no time frame or goal to be independent. Not willing to make the sacrifices necessary to tone down the social life and the expenses that go with that for their independence. And if they are not independent from the nest I would not encourage him or them to take on a spouse. They are all still having the time of their life and so be it. I've seen their Facebooks and Twitters, they are all about having fun right now. None of it screams I am mature and ready for marriage. I'd rather they all get it out of their system now, wait a few more years, get their own life in order, move out on their own and then consider marriage.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
