One of the best things about being an older woman is knowing when to walk away before it’s too late. Despite wanting children, Fox, 49, says she knew the man she was about to marry was not the one for her. If she were younger could she have had this same courage?

Could you walk away from your dreams of having your own family despite the fact that you felt the man you were marrying was not the love of your life? I have several friends from college who married at a young age who knew their men were not “The One” but chose to marry any way because they wanted children and a sense of family.

While these women are still married today, I can’t say that they are happily married, but they do have children whom they adore. So I guess the real question is, do we really have to make these kinds of trade offs to “have it all”?
