    if they are looking for insecure losers maybe

    they say the best marriages are a guy a few years older marrying a woman better educated

    that was my parents successful combination Mom had a masters and dad a four year engineering degree

    who knows

    more than a few guys want a woman who is going to earn as much or more than they do

    I suspect that they do, but not for any nefarious reason.

    Young women wanting most to get married and raise kids, a very noble pursuit, tend to focus on issues of the Hearth.

    Women seeking higher education obviously are driven by other motivations, exclusively or in tandem with a diluted yearning for a traditional familial role.

    No one can have It all.

    Obviously, lots of women get the degree and the husband, but their odds as a demographic group are lowered.

    No degreed women do not have a harder time. Many marriages began as relationships in college.

    I'm an ass man and it can compensate for a Ph.d even. A fat girl with degrees better have lots of batteries. Cellulite and degrees don't work for me either.

    I am convinced that at least a third (and by a third In mean 80%) of the women I encountered in grad school were there to husband shop.

    IDK. It is just something you pick up. In grad school you hear the business of people you barely know or don't even know on a daily basis. It was generally accepted that certain girls who were there were more interested in finding a hubby than in their studies. Nothing wrong with it. Just an observation, just like more people apply to law school when there is a war or a recession than during good economic times. Grad school is often a refuge.

    Of course - he brought up HUSBAND not CHILDREN. He's not talking about having a family persay - just getting married.

    Why do you say that? issues of the hearth? You mean the only way to raise kids is get married to your highschool sweetheart, cook good food, and get knocked up before 25? LOL What - only business minded women attend college?

    Did you know that women graduate at a higher rate than men from colleges?

    Women seeking higher education obviously are driven by other motivations, exclusively or in tandem with a diluted yearning for a traditional familial role.
    Would you say the same for guys who attend rather than get married young and have children - that they have a diluted yearning for a traditional familial role? To me it's untrue as a blanket statement - that's entirely dependent on the individual in question. Some do - some don't. My parents both were moderately educated before they married and had children. They didn't want to raise children while struggling too much in the beginning of their marriage - they wanted to make sure they could handle us, financially, first.

    No one can have It all.
    True - thus - what you do have in life, you better be able to support yourself and your kids you have in the future.

    Obviously, lots of women get the degree and the husband, but their odds as a demographic group are lowered.
    Highly doubtful - women AND men are marrying AFTER the college years these days (it's been this way for a while) - the number of those married and parenting while young (late teens / early 20's) is steadily declining. Statistics reflect that those who get pregnant/have kids while in this younger age bracket constitute the majority of single, uneducated or partially educated, mothers.

    If you want to care for your children - even if you're a happily married couple - you see to your education so you can get a decent job. It's much harder doing it the other way around: children first - career later.

    I know quite a few uneducated single people - but all of the educated women I know are married . . . and most have kids. What is a truth, though - is that it is much harder to secure a good education AFTER you have kids . . . never mind the concern of finding a husband - that's not complicated for those reasons.

    Why people would think that it would be a problem, I just have no clue.
