I have no idea because I'm been a wife and a Mommy my entire adult life, literally.
The thought terrifies me!

I'd probably still be nannying for the same family for 60+ hours a week and partying a little too hard on my one or two nights off.

I know exactly what I'd be doing. I'd be working in a LA spa doing skin care and massage. I'd live in a cute little Pre-war apt in Hollywood. I'd go to the beach often!

Or

I would live in a small flat in Paris. I LOVE Paris and feel really at home there.

Wow I feel bad I'm the only one that knows what she'd be doing without a family. I too have been a parent my entire adult life and would not be without my children or my husband. I'm really blessed to have them and love them more than life itself. I don't want people thinking I'd throw that away for the single life, but the above situation I mentioned was what I had always dreamed of doing. I'm lucky in the fact I'm licensed in both fields I mentioned (just not practicing right now) and get to live in the city I want. So I kinda half have my single life plan. Just gotta live the lifestyle with my hubby and 2 kiddos. Plus if my single plan had happened I wouldn't have met my hubby. We have a really interesting way the planets aligned and put us together. We had literally been crossing paths for 2 years before we met! So once again God's plan was better than any plan I could have come up with!

Cathrine.. I'm with you on this..

I would be doing the same thing as I'm doing now.. Enjoying my life here in the Northwest married or not.. I'd make the same amount of money and doing the same thing..

I had my first child when I turned 30.. I traveled and done things I wouldn't have done if I had kids in my early 20's.. I have a good idea what my life would be like..

But I do enjoy my children, even on the bad days. They are my world now. And everything I do now, is for them.. Not for me..

Hmmm good question. I'd probably still be a working Nurse. I'd have more money for sure so I'd probably be travelling lots. I'd probably be thinner and own more expensive clothes.

Another one here who has been a wife and mother their whole adult life, but that's only been the past 6 years so...

Married W/o kids: I'd either have found a decent day job, that I was satisfied with but not that I'd want to stay at forever. Honestly, the only difference I think their would be, would be not having to care for three kids (and everything that comes with it.) Tom and I had already grown out of that partying stage when we got engaged. We spent most nights at home watching TV, cuddled up on the couch. We'd probably go out a lot more (like we go out now...ROFL) Probably hitting a lot of concerts, movies, going out to dinner... Just enjoying married, childless life.

Single W/o kids: I'd probably be still working 60 hr weeks at Quinnipiac U, and have just stopped nannying full time back in '09 when the youngest of the three I used to started full day 1st grade. So with the 6 years experience I would have had, I'd probably either have another position doing that or looking.
And I'd probably be partying pretty hard on my very few nights off.
And honestly, I'd probably be a huge flirt, totally sleeping around..... (Basing that on how I behaved before Tom and while he was in prison......I'm horrible...)
