65. Dear Don Draper, I’m a young, beautiful and intelligent woman who decided to use my brain to succeed instead of using my daddy’s money to find a nice husband. I have no problem meeting interesting men, but I tend to want what I can’t have. Should I still pursue marriage even though the institution is a sham?


First you have other things to consider—the principal being your father’s money. Does your partner love that? Or your youth, beauty and intelligence? All, some or just one of these reasons is enough for most people, but a true marriage is built on a greater (some say the greatest) thing: a mutual understanding. If you’d like to see a sham destroyed, wait until you see yourself—your true self—reflected in the eyes of another. You’ll see marriage is not an institution. It doesn’t need to answer to history or society. Each marriage is an institution unto itself.
