My mom and Pam would disagree heartily on what makes for a happy life. My mother vehemently opposed serious relationships in high school, and she even cautioned me about getting married in general. What was most important to her was that I didn't feel like I had to get married. When she was 28, she got married because she thought if she didn't, something was "wrong" with her. She didn't want me to feel like that. So thanks, Mom, for never pressuring me. Or conversely, thanks a bunch for strongly dissuading me, thus allowing me to fall into current state of singledom. At least Pam sets her daughter up every New Year's!
