American conservatism

A friend of mine from San Francisco has been up for membership of The Francisca Club, a women's club founded in the late nineteenth century, where her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were all members. The interview consisted of lunch with the Committee, whose average age is around 65. My friend is currently living in London and she was discussing her life here with them and mentioned that she lives with her boyfriend. One of the Committee then asked,"Do you want to get married?" "Yes!" my friend replied. She was bowled over by the comment which followed:"Does your boyfriend's family have a problem that you've been divorced?"
