Ever notice how fairytales and about ninety-nine out of a hundred romance tales you see or read are about how two people first got together? Cinderella meets her prince, against all odds, and he manages to find her again after he's lost her, against all odds, and the two of them ride off together in the carriage, into the dusky sunset. Prince Charming defeats the evil dragon to free Sleeping Beauty from her hundred-year slumber. Belle falls for Beast despite his unsavory appearance.

How come we don't start the story with Cinderella five years into her marriage with the prince? Why not pick up a decade after Sleeping Beauty woke up and Prince Charming and she made castle together? Why do we never see Belle and Beast after they've had their first couple of half-human, half-animal offspring?

It's because there's nothing exciting about that. We don't care about two people that've been together for years; that's old news. We want to know about the new and exciting things that are going on: those two people who might get together – who should get together – but who still may not get together.

Chase woke up one day in 2004 tired of being alone. So, he set to work and read every book he could find, studied every teacher he could meet, and talked to every girl he could talk to to figure out dating. After four years, scads of lays, and many great girlfriends (plus plenty of failures along the way), he launched this website. He will teach you everything he knows about girls in one single program in his One Date System.

Most people did not expect to live to be 35-40 years old, even in cavemen days we've found skeletons that lived into their 80's. The fact is when a baby is born, their life expectancy before vaccines and antibiotics and the high quality of food we have now was pretty low. If they lived past 10, they would be able to expect to live at least to 60-80 years old, but the majority died before 10, so the AVERAGE lifespan (ie, adding the highest age and the lowest age that people grew to and then dividing) was about 35-40. Even in Shakespere's time the age of marriage was 25-30 for women.

Some of this seems somewhat accurate from the angle of which it is perceived. And yet it is a very important thing for people to note having children is NOT the answer to save a relationship .

Really depends upon the situation. If you maintain distance, infrequency of
contact and a touch of mystery, things can last a lot longer.

I found this article really accurate. It happened to me with my last two ex´s who were turning 30 yrs old and when they hit that age and they didn´t have children yet they will be loosing their minds if you don´t bring this subject to your relatinship. The lesson I learned (I´m 41 yrs old) is that if you meet a girl who is > 30 still single and no children that in itself is a huge red flag (there are exceptions of course). Women that age that are single in my experience begin to change the way they are just to lock a guy down and they usually present themselves as someone who they are not under the surface. Usually the mask will go down after the first year. Bottom line, watch the red flags and the two year mark is a good threshhold to asses the woman you are with. You have two years to gather all the information you need to move things forward or not. After that you either move towards reproduction or she eventually will line up a replacement.
