    common sense, really. Most women I know in grad school are either already hooked up or are too busy to factor in romance.

    but back to the topic of the thread - it is always interesting to look at REAL research, rather than the speculation of internet troglodytes:

    In 1980, the effect of education on both “Current” and “Ever” is negative and highly
    significant. The coefficients correspond to marginal effects of -.0031 and -.0028, respectively,
    indicating that each additional year of education is associated with about a 3.1 percentage point lower
    likelihood of being currently married at, and a 2.8 percentage point lower likelihood of having been
    married by, age 40-44 in 1980
    . The two measures of education produce virtually identical results.

    In 1990, the coefficient of education on “Current” is not significantly different from zero,
    while the comparable coefficient on “Ever” is still negative and significant.
    In both cases, the
    coefficients are significantly smaller (t=9.31 for “Current”, t=6.77 for “Ever”) than in 1980.

    The significantly positive coefficient of education on “Current” in 2000 corresponds to a
    marginal effect of .0063, indicating that each additional year of education is associated with a 0.63 a
    percentage point increase in the likelihood of being married
    (t=11.54); this also effect is significantly
    different than the effect in 1990 (t=9.62). The effect of education on “Ever” is not significant, but is
    significantly greater than the 1990 coefficient (t=6.25).

    Overall, these results suggest that a significant success penalty existed in 1980, but fell
    significantly in each of the subsequent two decades. The 2000 results suggest the existence of a
    success premium for the outcome currently married, and no significant relationship between education
    and having ever been married
    .

    Re: Do Degreed women have a harder time finding a Husband?

    I do notice a lot of single degreed women, even pretty ones, in their twenties and thirties. It's sad because I don't think with the careerist mindset they have that they will ever find a man that earns more than them.



    That's what I notice. A ton of degreed, 24-35 women making 35-50k a year thinking they're going to find a 30-35 year old guy making 60-150k+. It just isn't going to happen and they don't see it. It really is out there. There's tons of it. These women have been lied to. There are more degreed women now among under 40's than there are men and those women don't realize that the ratios aren't 1:1. The reality is a lot of these women will never marry because they wait until 28-35 and then realize Mr. 95k a year isn't there and it's too late. Men their own age won't marry them because they don't earn what they earn or they earn the same so they want a woman who earns less and is less careerist, and the irony is these women, even after these facts, still often cannot accept being with men that don't earn significantly more than they do.


    The truth is many of these degreed women are in fact never going to marry.

    I knew several girls in college that said their main purpose for being there was to find a husband. The M.R.S. Degree, we called it.

    You mean single people look for a mate? Well duh. That was not the point of 80% of females attending. It is still sexist.

    Tell that to Josie. She has boobies and verified that some women go to college to husband shop. Why would grad school be any different? Here is a clue: It is not. Geez, do I need to buy you the Spark Notes on the human condition?

    Why, by looking to the way people now, and always have behaved. To do otherwise might make one a good Marxist, but requires a divorce from Reality.

    Just in the ways so clearly described in my other posts on the topic.

    Well, for one thing, Human Nature is real, while same sex "marriage," is a perverse fantasy.

    That said, form time to time in history, homosexual practitioners have attempted to gain acceptability for their little peccadilloes. While they sometimes gain limited success in elite classes and rarely in militant classes, (see Spartans, Mamelukes,) in short order they are once again suppressed by more vital classes, societies countries or conquerors. It is a recurring pattern, across many times and cultures and thus likely an expression of natural tendency. In the case of out own society, the casual and dispassionate historical observer will note the revival of Traditional Militant Islam worldwide, and its homicidal suppression of overt homosexuality. What will likely be written on the next page of history on this sordid topic is not terribly hard to imagine.

    how do you define it?
    No. Those issues are cultural and societal, obviously. The interested student is referred to a study of the rule of women in modern, wealthy and vital Islamic nations.

    However, assuming at least a great amount of time in the future of Humanity, it is hard to imagine that just about any form of society that has occurred in the past will not recur in the future.
