A startling number of young women are unable to find a spouse, and new research from a group of economists suggests their would-be partners are just not up to snuff.

According to a recent study, 90% of all divorces are initiated by college-educated women.
Think I might do a comedy shot but then if it went viral ....
Linkee no workee, sorry.
Amelia Reid in the back instructing.

I think this article ignored the elephant in the room.
From what I've seen, a huge part of the problem is that a lot of young eligible, employed men have a hard time finding women who share their dream of children who are cared for by a full time parent, rather than a wife whose dream is of a 3 mo pregnancy-leave followed by a return to her fulltime highly rewarding career, with the motherhood role provided by a series of underpaid Guatemalans.
But young American men have no dearth of young foreign women available who share their same dreams of a nuclear family. Even in the non coastal areas of the US, you see every day white males with wives who are Latinos or Asians (especially Filipinos).
And there was a lot about "Russian & Ukranian Brides" starting in the mid 1990s. I found especially poignant the remarks made by the female friends of the groom at the end of a Denver TV station's human-interest documentary about a young Denver engineer who married a Ukranian bride. The camera person was sitting at a table at the reception with female friends of the groom, some of them ex-GF's of his. Though he made more than enough to support kids plus a fulltime mom, just like the home he grew up in and longed for, none of his female peer group shared that dream. And you heard one of them asking the others, "I'm happy for him, but why couldn't he marry one of us? What's wrong with us?"
The unspoken answer of course, was a mismatch in what they thought a family should be, ie "dad + mom + kids" versus "dad + mom + kids + full-time nanny".
I've not seen stats for this phenomenon, but I'm certain it has a significant impact on draining the pool of eligible American bachelors.
Hey, young American men. If your only choice is to have your kids brought up by a Guatemalan women, then you may as well marry a Guatemalan who shares your view of what a family looks like!
It sounded like a California court. Sad to hear Florida has the same problem.
Is *that* why Schwarzenegger banged the hired help?
Life happens, doesn’t it?
It’s okay if someone wants to place what they want over what they don’t want, that’s preferences.
The obligation is to be honest with the other side.
And most of us have had those ‘hiccup’ relationships, haven’t we?
I really believe if a person has set preferences, they really need to be upfront. The ‘what if they don’t want to date me, then? Syndrome, as I call it, is extremely noxious and dangerous. The person who has that symptom is already indicating they are callous about others.
We each only have a finite set of moments. To deprive someone of possible time to chose a mate because of selfishness is appalling.
I’ll get of my soapbox.
I am truly glad for your life’s path.
Your Yesterdays have left a path for many Tomorrows.
Many of US men went overseas and when we can back we did not recognize our Country. Watching commercials and having that I want everything men—tality combined with I had two sisters and a mom to show me why you find someone not programmed by social justice professors and hollyweird.... Today Americabs both men and women have false expectations and are actually less educated and less commonsense than is necessary for marriage.
Those that hookup do and those that want more get married.
Communist Agenda: Destroy the family unit. Mission largely accomplished.
Both rude and tasteless.
Oh, if you get the attention of the mob...volcano, meet Dancer.
...and I forget, “presumptuous.”
women are believing the lies of feminism. God forbid you ever say “submit.”
“...and I forget, presumptuous.
You haven’t even managed to hit the more interesting words in the dictionary.
And this is why I value freedom of speech.
Imagine how dull a world this would be without a civilized discourse?
Just recall how exciting the language was in the days of our Founding Fathers!
Great about page.
Chickie, we pay prostitutes to leave.
Sure you do, honey. Keep telling yourself that.
Some of the single women I’ve seen out there are no door prizes either. Slovenly, out of shape, too much drinking, no hobbies, little religious beliefs, self-centered, and very ignorant of the real world.
[PS: My wife of 46 years made me write that. She thinks I’m a misogynist but I told her I was always Jewish]
Women want rich guys. Quick(!)....someone alert the media at this 'astonishing' new fact..../s
