Engagement/Marriage vs. Career

Liked this in an article I read by Elissa Schappell "Married at 24: Crazy in Love or Just Crazy?"

"But there's been a downside for me, too. While I knew that committing to Rob obviously meant a big change in my life — it would really cut into my dating — it never occurred to me how tying the knot might affect my career. Outside of a sunburn from our on-the-cheap weeklong honeymoon in Portugal, nothing, as far as I was concerned, had really changed. But in the eyes of the world, I had. I was a wife. Off-limits. Some days it seemed everywhere I looked — publishing, retail, the art world — doors were opening for single women simply because they still had sexual currency to spread around."
