The first thing that comes to mind from my mom was a sense that I needed to be able to take care of myself. You need to take care of yourself emotionally and financially so that you don’t have to be dependent on someone else. This is what my mother and her friends learned. My mother married young, her friends married young; they were the pre-women’s lib generation. She wanted me to have the ability to make life choices from a position of strength.
