When Penrose Halson was 25 and still unmarried, her mother sent her to the Katharine Allen Marriage & Advice Bureau. Twenty years later, after a career in teaching, writing and editing, she and her management consultant husband Bill took over that same Bureau. They additionally acquired The Marriage Bureau, which had been set up in 1939 by two 24-year-olds. As Bill had predicted, matchmaking suited Penrose down to the ground, and they remain happily in touch with many former clients who visit them in London. With such a magnificent history, Penrose decided that the story of The Marriage Bureau was too rich to be ignored. Drawing from her own experiences, along with the Bureau’s extensive archives—newspaper and magazine articles, advertisements, registration forms, letters, photographs, books by the original proprietors, etc. she's written an amazing story of life and love during and after World War II. She makes you wish she was your own matchmaker today. View Guest page

Not all women want or are able to achieve motherhood, for various reasons. Viewing all women through the motherhood lens can have precarious results....I came of age in the late 1970s/early 80s. The feminist storms of the 1960s had calmed...I was not raised with the voices of Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan. Growing up in a small Midwestern farm town, the images of women I saw consisted mainly of women pursuing marriage & motherhood. The economy changed in the 1980s, and most families needed two incomes to get by. By the mid-1980s, I was married with a baby, working outside the home full-time, and carrying a very heavy load. Thirty years later, I have experienced marriage, divorce, single motherhood, re-marriage, a challenging step-family situation, and 3 decades of mothering 3 children whom I adore." View Guest page
