    Of course, from personal experience you can pick out individuals that "prove" any theory you want to prove .... but when the representational value of these samples is countered by proper research, they just aren't relevant.
    It is true that my statement resides in anecdotal evidence. But you mention research that refutes my statement? Where is it?

    both redress and I have posted links to research showing that in the last few decades, higher education is not linked to lower rates of marriage. in fact, some research suggests there is a slight positive correlation.

    the research I quoted refers to people being married by age 40, which would not preclude people marrying later than the norm in previous generations. IN my generation, an "elderly prima patura" was 30 - now it is not unusual at all for a woman to have her first child in her thirties.

    there are distinct advantages to marrying later and starting a family when financially secure, and although research shows more 18 - 34 yo women regard a successful marriage as important than do 18 - 34 yo men Love and Marriage | Pew Social & Demographic Trends they still seem to value education.

    If a host of studies are to be believed, marrying these women is asking for trouble. If they quit their jobs and stay home with the kids, they will be unhappy (Journal of Marriage and Family, 2003). They will be unhappy if they make more money than you do (Social Forces, 2006). You will be unhappy if they make more money than you do (Journal of Marriage and Family, 2001). You will be more likely to fall ill (American Journal of Sociology). Even your house will be dirtier (Institute for Social Research).

    Perhaps they want to get their career going before they have to be out of commission for awhile to pop out some chillins.

    Well, my ex-wife always gave me the third degree if I was so much as 5 minutes late from the time she expected.

    I figured she must have had one to spare, her having a bachelors, a masters and a Phd.

    Well if there is a market for available good men when a woman with a career is already 40 then of course the situation changes. The ones I mentioned are single, but they are in their mid 30's.

    No... I know my girl is smarter than me and she's about to go for her masters and beyond while I am the lowly bachelors in political science & history. I prefer a women who is smart or smarter than me at least. A degree should be something promoted for everyone, not condemned because some men think women should still be sub servant.

    I have met beautiful women who are too darn old due to their priorities of careers first. Whats worse they are sometimes older than me and they approach me . Sometimes I get cruel and mention their age, sometimes I just ignore them overall (I do not have the attraction for older women, but to the opposite).

    There are songs in Albanian that state "You did not want me, you did not want to hang around with people like me (i.e., uneducated), but now you are alone!"

    There's always their degree of ugliness to consider, some personalities aren't fit for the "husband-hunting" process.

    The title begs the question that all women seek husbands, and that educated women are somehow less able to trap one than their stupid sisters.
    Don't work out, work in.
