In the movie Rudy, we have an un-athletic young fella who dreams of playing Notre Dame football. He works hard, does not really become skilled at all, but finally makes it on the field for one play. This is the climax of the movie.
Early in the movie, Rudy’s girlfriend shows him this modest home. She suggests that they buy it and get married. Rudy says no, he is going to play Notre Dame football, and not be very good at it. The girlfriend, of course, is disappointed.
This movie was set in the late 1960s. Back then, it seems that young women wanted to get married young and have children. Or, at least some of them. Perhaps a bit fewer than a decade before. I am sure that modern women are contemplating “What was she thinking”.
Probably the movie wont be banned because after all, she didn’t get her wish. Perhaps it is assumed that she then saw the light and spent her 20s on career and fun.
Which leads to the question: Would she have been happier (especially in the long run) getting married and having a family, or spending her twenties as a modern woman is prescribed to do?
Exit question: What type of woman these days wants to marry young?
