    This is telling. Note the emphasis paid to his assets which would ensure food, safety and security first. Curious how he made out.

    As an aside, “spinster” during that time period often meant the mid-20s at most. So this guy was looking for an older woman, yes, but *probably* not drastically older than 26/27.

    Back when 18 year olds could afford a house. Now I know why it was called the good old days.

    Old school? . Some poor sap put out a wanted add in our local paper ( Globe Gazette North Iowa) That said: Wanted a female of child bearing age, best part is it was 2019 or so and not 1919.

    Average life expectancy then was about 40 years old so18 years old at that time was all grown up and then some. I’m sure he didn’t suspect millions of people in the future reading his ad with the help of instantaneous, invisible beams of energy. Wonder how he made out.

    That’s crazy! Kinda young to be looking for a spinster. Although, 18 was borderline old to be starting a family.

    He’d be considered middle aged. Life expectancy was only around 40 years old in the 1860s. I’d be fucked, I’m 34 and only just feel like I’ve only just got on my feet in life.
