So, what's “ABMrs.”?
It’s the romantic version of All But Dissertation, commonly known in academic circles as “ABD”-- that state of limbo between finishing all of your doctoral-level courses and writing and defending your dissertation.
It’s uncomfortable. It’s confusing. It’s hard to explain to people... and it may feel oddly familiar if you’re a woman over thirty who is accomplished, but (still!) unmarried.
When you’ve done all the fabulous things that the world says you’re supposed to do -- except find your ideal mate --you’re not "ABD," you’re "ABMrs." - All But Mrs!
