Then you have many men in our age group are already married, gay or dead. So what’s a middle-aged woman to do when she wants to meet a guy?

When you’re a woman over 40 years of age, finding companionship with the opposite sex can be a challenge.  Gone are the days of Looking for Mr. Good Bar , finding him in church or being fixed up with the friend of a friend.  These days, we have people telling us we can find true love on the internet.  I’m not knocking it because I did it and ended up getting re-married.  But I have to tell you, I had to weed through some garbage to find him.  You see, for every decent individual out there in cyberspace, there are at least a dozen weirdoes, freaks, and others who give the concept a black eye.  There are men whose motives are simply to prey on the poor old widow, divorcee, or “I’m desperate” never-been-married woman. 

Then you have many men in our age group are already married, gay or dead.  So what’s a middle-aged woman to do when she wants to meet a guy?  Well, why not try prison? I actually heard a woman on the radio recently talking about her upcoming nuptial plans with someone sentenced to 30 years behind bars.  She fit the profile perfectly.  She was over 40, had never been married, no children and no real social life.  Before hanging up, she joked about knowing where her man was going to be at all times.     

According to statistics from the Justice Department, the nation’s prison population is becoming more middle-aged. From 1995 through 2003, inmates between the ages of 40 and 54 accounted for more than 46 percent of the total growth in the U.S. prison population.  The number of inmates in federal and state prisons age 55 and older increased more than 30 percent from 2000 to 2005. They say that’s a faster rare the overall prison growth rate of nine percent.   And according to the Southern Legislative Conference, in 16 Southern states, the growth rate has escalated by an average of 145 percent since 1997.

Where’s the best place to find a prisoner to marry?  Probably in California where prison weddings are said to be a regular occurrence.  Officials say about 20 inmates get married in ceremonies held on the first Friday of even-numbered months at San Quentin, and usually at least one death row inmate is among them.

Based on this information, I guess there’s no reason for anyone to be alone ever again, right?

Great article! And I live in the SF Bay Area. You're right, based on this info there's absolutely no reason beyond that added "meno" moment for anyone to be alone -ever again. Funny but true.

I think I'll stay my current course and let the other women head for the new *bar* scene.
