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).
    Wow - excellent point! I also came across an article while trying to do research on this subject which said "Why you shouldn't get married straight out of college" - and then that article cited another article that discussed "Why college might be the ideal place to find the perfect partner for you"

    LOL

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

    Depends on the guy I guess. I wouldn't want to date a woman that does not have a degree.

    I want a woman who is like me on many accounts, and "highly educated" is one of them. As someone with multiple undergrads and an MBA, I think I would have little in common with a chick who eeked through high school and went, "whew, glad that's all over".

    Also, since I want a career-oriented woman (as I'm not interested in having children), a woman who wants to begin her career of being a personal cook, maid, and babymaker at the age of 18 is not my type in the least.

    do they want to marry?

    there are people who have no intention of marrying. and maybe for good reason if you are a woman.

    I haven't seen recent studies, but research in the nineties suggested that marriage had negative impacts on women's mental health, while improving men's mental health.
    Every political good carried to the extreme must be productive of evil.

    I question the bias of those studies. Since half of all marriages end in divorce, and 95% of all women benefit financially from divorce, it stands to reason that marriage would have positive aspects on women and negative aspects on men.

    I know I get giddy at the idea that a woman can take half my crap away for little to no reason.

    The half the woman takes is almost always bigger than the half the man takes.

    Maybe if you're a bitch of a man. I'd love it if I had a wife that made more than me.

    I'll marry Oprah. I can be all emasculated on my new private jet and throw myself a pity party as I travel around the world on her dime. Pity party for me.
