" If it appears like the variety of complaints from your women pals concerning not having the ability to find a man is growing, we might finally know why.

Somewhere between 1979 as well as 2008, Americans determined it was much less worth it to obtain hitched: the share of 25 to 39-year-old women that were currently married fell 10 percent amongst those with college levels, 15 percent for those with some university, as well as a complete 20 percent for women with a high school education and learning or much less.

This excellent American marriage decline– a drop from 72 percent of U.S. adults being wed in 1960 to half in 2014– is normally liquid chalked up to gains in ladies's civil liberties, the normalization of separation, and the like.

Yet it also has a whole lot to do with males. Specifically, economic forces are making them much less appealing partners, as well as it ties right into everything from China to opioids." *.

    There are many reasons why marriage is declining, but the cost of a wedding, if people understand the TRUE MEANING of marriage, should NOT be one of them. Marriage is about a commitment to a relationship, and not about how opulent a ceremony should be, which commemorates that relationship (i.e. a wedding). If the cost of a wedding is what is dissuading people from marriage, than those people are NOT sufficiently in love with each other, as much as they are in love with the IDEA of marriage, and showing themselves off in an ostentatious way to their family and friends. If marriage is about commitment, love, and loyalty, and the legal benefits which come with that union, which is what it should be about, then as long you can afford the paltry cost of a marriage license, which is generally less than $100.00 in most states, then you have all you need to be married. Any rationalization citing the cost of a trivial thing like a wedding ceremony expresses a level of superficiality that only serves the wedding industry. Its about keeping up with the Joneses and not about the true desire to be married. In a society where people had their priorities straight with regards to marriage, and truly cared about its meaning, a lucrative multi-billion dollar wedding industry SHOULD NOT exist. The fact that such a profitable industry exists, is a testament to the fact that, for many people, vain displays of wealth are more important than true substantive acts of love. Of course, what is really driving this industry, if we are going to be candid, are really women. Most men could care less about how luxurious a wedding is, and most scorn the idea of a big expensive wedding. If women get over this way of thinking that their “special day” can only be special if it is extravagant, and full of pageantry, this would not be an issue.

    Cenk I agree with you, the situation is changing… there’s no answers anymore.

    The Cost of women…is too great! Marriage is dead and good riddance.

    A unmarried man doesn’t hold as bad a stigma as an unmarried woman.

    I think the reason is that less men are trying to get in relationships. When the initiating factor disappears, the final result does too of course. Because at the end of the day there’s no perfect person for you out there, so why try to find them?

    Marriage is cancer. Cancer caused by feminism, which is cancer personified. It’s just a big cancer clusterfuck. Young men thinking of getting married, find the worst most crime ridden part of town and go hang out in it with your fancy car with just married printed all over it and money hanging out of your pockets and see what happens. It’s just like a divorce but probably less expensive and less heartbreaking.

    Polygamy is for the best. Have as many dicks or pussies as you’d like, with consequence of course.

    Rich, Middle or poor who care’s if you love him or her marry them, and let fate decide.

    Very unclear whether a clear line of causation is established. The idea is expressed here that people are not getting married because they are poor. That may not be true. It may be that marriage leads to increased prosperity. Not pro-marriage at all but this study doesn’t seem to indicate any cause-effect here. To know the value of this study far more information is needed.

    You can be “single” (unmarried) and still be in a monogamous romantic relationship. You can be a successful man and live with a “poor” woman that receives government assistance…. And that can be a benefit in itself. Imagine making 100k and your significant other gets food stamps. You can live with her and easily afford to pay her section 8 rent.

    We have a triad with an adopted kid. Really don’t understand how only 2 parents manage (and the kid thinks it’s great!)

    Not equality but radical feminism could be one reason as
    well as marginalizing men by the federal government.
    But I am sure TYT won’t shine a light on this.

    I don’t care about marriage. Just drop goddamn birth rate Earth is exploding!

    Marriage gives you legal protection, especially after death. Until we untangle the governmental “perks” of being legally bound to another person, we will have ppl who feel the NEED to be married, regardless of the happiness or fullfilment of that marriage.

    Marriage promotes monogamy in societies such as those found in the Western World. Monogamy was an evolved societal trait of humans and helps strengthen our society. Marriage, for right now, is essential. The only way to replace it, as some on the board mentioned, is to find an alternative that keeps monogamy a societal trait and encourages it. Also, Ana was right when mentioning the powerful statistics showing dual-income and dual-parental household raise children, on average, better than households with only one parent.

    every man who marries is doing a woman a huge favor. even if she is perfect, she’s lucky to have ANY man

    well… if you want to make marriage cool again, you need to start with plural marriages. Have like 4 guys and 4 girls, and all are married. Each guy have 4 wives, each girl have 4 husbonds. Then every child will have 8 parents.
