*At the time of this interview, Joan had already been married and divorced three times. She had one more brief marriage before finally giving up her search to find her Mr. Right.
Who is the right man?
I’ve never met the ideal man. My big problem is that I have a great responsibility. I have four children. I know they’ll be better off if they have a father. These four kids (adopted) never did have a father and I’d be better off with a husband – but suppose I get a husband who doesn’t like kids, or a father who doesn’t love me?
What if the right man never comes along?
In that case I’m already adjusted to my life the way it is now – with my two great loves, my children and my work. No girl can go out and look for a husband. They way of a woman’s life doesn’t call for that.
