Just a reminder: this mini-series of posts are memories I have of my Mom; things she told me, lessons learned, advice she gave, and in some cases how being where I am now in my life makes her words all the more interesting to me.
Mom shared with me more than once her personal observation regarding men who had never married by the time they were 35.
"You can pretty much count on it; if they haven't been married by then, they're homosexual." In later years she used the word "gay" instead.
There were no judgments, just her personal conclusion
I can already think of several exceptions to this rule.
