Remember, Ladiez…

…nothing you do will ever be as important as whom you marry:

Sure, you might have your own nearly twenty-year successful career as, say, an actress, writer, producer, and director, but if you're married to someone even more superstarry, you're rendered invisible! But, whatever you do, don't think about marrying someone less superstarry, or—Maude forbid—not marrying at all, because then you'll be rendered incomplete.

This Double Standard brought to you by The PatriarchyTM. Please enjoy, and have a nice day!
