BACHELORS FOUR YEARS LATER

Dean got married! This Conflicted bachelor, moved to tears because he was so unhappy at age 41, when contacted four years after his initial interviews, reports:

I wanted to get married, and I found the right girl to do it. She was 38 years old and never married. She had good values and comes from a good family. She is a good person and very pretty. I was tired of dating women. We met in June, got engaged in August, and were married in November. I was surprised about how easy it was to propose to her; I had never proposed to anyone. I was ready, and she was ready, too.

Consistent with his ambivalent personality, however, Dean also reports:

I'm not real happy about being married. The adjustment has been real difficult. There is a control issue there: She is very strong about having her own way. At first I was happy, but at about the end of the first year she began to take my freedom away. She wants to know where I am going, and now I can't do anything on my own. She has some strong ideas about what a husband should be, and she doesn't back down from them.
