Christine was recently digging through old boxes in her storeroom preparing to move to a new house. In one box, she came across a magazine of June 2, 19
  86.
  There's a reason Christine had saved the magazine for 20 years. In its pages, she was one of more than a dozen women reported in an article discussing the "cruel reality" of their poor marriage prospects (前景). At the time Christine was living in Chicago and greatly annoyed by the fact that her social life didn't seem to be progressing toward a trip down the aisle. "I had a lot of girlfriends in the same boat," she says.
  But a funny thing happened. At age 40, she married; a few weeks ago she and her husband celebrated their 10th anniversary (周年纪念). Today she' s the happy mom to two children from her husband's first marriage. Looking back on her single days, she remembers her unhappiness. "I had the same feeling that many women have, which is that you're not considered a whole person unless you're married with children," she says. "But as I reached my 40s, I realized that was totally wrong ... I could still have a very fulfilling life. " It was only after she' d come to peace with the fact that she might never marry that she met her future husband while shopping in a supermarket.
  To mark the 20th anniversary of this story, reporters sought out as many of the women in the story as they could find. Out of 14 single women in the article, 11 were found. Among them, 吨ht ended up marrying, and three remain single. Several had children. None divorced(离婚) . For her part, Christine isn't surprised. "I've watched a lot of people, married while young, get divorced," she says. "I think that if you do wait until Mr. Right comes along, you have a much better chance. "
