Kids are expensive and single, child-free women are taking note.
New data from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis showed that single women without kids pocketed $65,000 more in wealth in 2019 than single, child-free men, who has an of $57,000. Single mothers, on the other hand, had only $7,000.
This is unsurprising since on average, it takes about $286,000/year to raise two children in the US according to the USDA as reported by Bankrate. These staggering figures, along with improved sex education and more financial independence among women, may correlate to the drop in US births.
*Based on Census Bureau historical data and Morgan Stanley forecasts, 45% of prime working age women (ages 25-44) will be single by 2030—the largest share in history—up from 41% in 2018. Single women are expected to grow +1.2% annually from 2018-2030 compared with +0.8% for the overall U.S. population (Female Population Projection, Index 2010=100)

Do they pick up the check after dinner?
They’re also on average more intelligent, as conventionally measured. This has been a recognized trend for almost as long as IQ tests have been used.
While there are certainly exceptions, my experience tells me that single, child-free women are terribly unhappy people. They may have money in their bank accounts, but they are miserable.
not counting all those free meals/drinks over 40-50 yers...
Think that one through, Ben. How do you think they were able to save up more wealth?
Life has more to it than just a dollar value. Pretty shallow thinking here.
More money for them to take care of more cats later on, while they ask “where have all the good guys gone” who don’t want “well-traveled” women, while they are out of hypergamous options.

they own the restaurant
What a load of donkey snot!
We are only now just entering the stage where the first of these same single, child-less, career women are retiring, or in their dotage.
Any stats or commentary on that?
What I’ve noticed about older childless women is one day they realize the mistake they made. Without all those work relationships, they’re suddenly damned lonely. I can’t recall who said it but, “nobody on their death bed whispers, ‘I wish I’d spent more time at work.’”
“$286,000/year to raise two children in the US according”
What are those kids doing, vacationing in the Alps or the French Riviera all summer long?
Dining in fine restaurants every night of the week?
That means a couple would have to clear more than $500,000 per year if all four were to live comfortably.
This number can’t be right. I know couples who are both physicians and they don’t make that.
Might explain why cats are so popular as pets.
I guess some of them with more money have rare purebred cats and drink their wine from bottles with corks in them.
When I’ve seen these amounts before, it’s to raise a child, or two, to the age of 18.
Almost certainly an error.
Probably $286,000 to raise them to 18 years old.
Or, they are assigning high wages to the immense time spent caring for children.
Look at Joe Brandon..he has millions of dollars and is a miserable a-hole..Everyone supposedly voted for him to be king but no one likes him.
One’s own children’s have far more value. Then a career will ever have.
One of the biggest cons the left has told us is not to have more children.
