Cupid's Pulse Article: ‘Marry Smart’ Author Susan Patton Wants Young Women to “Plan Ahead For Their Happiness”

Interview by Whitney Johnson. Written by Liz Kim.

Maybe it’s the native New Yorker in her, but newly-minted author Susan Patton is not afraid to tell it like it is. Although she is first and foremost a human resources consultant and an executive coach, she is perhaps best known for a letter she wrote to The Daily Princetonian, the newspaper of her alma mater, in March 2013.

Her note advised Princeton’s young female students to find their husbands while at school rather than dating men post-college who probably won’t be of the same standard. She also suggested that female students dedicate less energy solely to advancing their careers and more towards finding a good mate and preparing for children. Naturally, the responses were visceral and immediate. The sheer amount of comments not only shut down Princeton’s website, but word quickly spread and soon, Patton was on every talk show imaginable defending her words.

Here, she talks to CupidsPulse.com about her controversial letter and new book Marry Smart: Advice for Finding THE ONE, which was released yesterday.
