Advices at right age!

"The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself."
~Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

Advices are given for free at all time by everyone (even without you demanding!!!) especially if you attain a marriageable age! People who had forgotten your existence are suddenly reminded of you once you are of "right age". Most All parents express their concern and try to convince sons/daughters esp if you're of "right age". ;)

A conversion with a friend 'bout how parents crib when children attain marriageable age. I want to publish apart of our conversation here. My friends identity has been maintained anonymous. Few translations are given in [ ]
