Many situations arise like when they found a baby on their doorstep or take in a rebellious youth or when Donna tries to patch up marital spats among friends.
While I agree this was a 1950s sitcom, I don't feel it was "typical".
Not sure about how she got along with Morgan Brittany.
So I followed in the footsteps of the male role models I had; mostly stoic, emotionally unavailable, intellectually focused men.
That worked for a while but at some point during the past 18 or so years that I have been actively and sometimes intensively engaged in personal growth, I have discovered that behind the walls and under the layers of distance and detachment lives a highly sensitive person.
This awakening sensitivity has, sometimes, felt more like a burden than a blessing.
Her lone journey has had its issues, all mothers do, but her unequal adulthood will not go unheard or unexplained.
What made her choose this decision and why did she not get married? Donna had no hurry in getting married nor is she planning to get married.
