    Thanks for a good post. I friend of mine kept getting moved around in her job because moving her wouldn’t disrupt a family. Her complaint was “How can I form a family if I can’t stay in one place for a while?” so that move-the-single-person mentality works both ways.

    Remember the old “marriage penalty” debate? I certainly heard lots about that. Ended up institutionalizing a single penalty, it seems to me.

    I was watching this episode and nearly fell out of my chair. Afterwards, I wrote to CBS to thank them for portraying single, childless women in their 50s in a positive light. I hope others will write too. We need more portrayals of this kind of reality!

      I agree that’s a great idea. I posted my gratitude at the Madame Secretary Facebook page.
