Various statistics show that women are waiting longer to marry and have kids. According to Wendy Williams, this is a good thing. The talk show host recently addressed the idea of marriage and motherhood stunting a woman’s career growth during a sit-down talk with Forbes Woman owner Moira Forbes.
“I do feel it is difficult for men to accept really successful career women,” began Wendy. “Whether it be that we out-earn them or the marquee, our names are brighter than their own. I also feel like marriage and babies stunt a woman’s growth career-wise and they don’t understand like, once you get married and once you have kids, you can’t do all the things that you used to do and maintain this important precious thing you’ve built as a family.”
Williams went on to suggest that women wait until they are at least 30-years-old to wed and begin families of their own. “Use your entire 20s,” suggested the television personality. “Work your behind off in your career and get some ground footing, then think about meeting that guy. Even if you’ve met him at 27, don’t get engaged and don’t move to where he is. This is about you and your career. Because we are the ones that lose in marriage. Not men!”
