Part of the phenomenon was foretold in the movie Idiocracy:

While most of these women are not that smart, they are certainly not the dumbest cookies out there - the dumb women have plenty of kids.

It's part of a dysgenic society.

A huge overlooked point in all this: It is no longer economically viable to have a single income household with a stay at home Mom anywhere in the USA.

In the more prosperous regions of the country (California, NYC area, DC, etc), it takes at least $200k/yr for a family of four to live a middle class lifestyle and save anything for retirement. In some areas it is even more than that:

"Here’s a sad reality: In order to raise a family in an expensive coastal city like San Francisco or New York, you’ve now got to make $350,000 or more a year.

You can certainly live on less, but it won’t be easy if your goal is to raise a family, save for your children’s education, save for your own home and save for retirement (so you can actually retire by a reasonable age)."

cnbc.com/2019/09/11/you-need-to-make-350000-a-year-to-live-a-middle-class-lifestyle-today-heres-why.html

Even a man with a 6 figure income living somewhere cheap like Omaha cannot afford to have his wife stay home with two kids. Factor in a mortgage, taxes, retirement savings, cars, food, clothes, health insurance, etc....$10k/month can go by shockingly fast.

A single layoff, unexpected medical expense, or any other major unplanned expense could quickly make bankruptcy a necessity.

It is necessary to have two fully employed parents if only to ensure access to health insurance at all times in case a kid gets sick.

The tax authorities can mercilessly confiscate your income, and you are not even entitled to the services you paid for! (from the same previous article):

"In some major cities like San Francisco, the public school system starting in kindergarten is based on a lottery system, so even if you pay tens of thousands of dollars per year in property tax, your child is not guaranteed a spot in your neighborhood schools."

Thanks for the cash whitey, now teach your daughter not to resist while Da'Quan and Javier have their way with her!

Everything is breaking down so profoundly, and it seems so quickly, too. I shudder to think where this ends up in a few years.....

RE: Single women in their 30s/40s are starting to realize they will die alone
< Kids are not that expensive and middle-class is relative indeed. Those articles are published to convince the higher-performers to delay children in order to reach those 200-300k household incomes which only a very few reach. Meanwhiele the ones reliant on welfare pop out 5 and don't care.

Saving for college is insane anyway - if a student loan is truly viable then the kid can take that - any bank can give it to them if it's Harvard Law or MIT applied STEM. Schools are a different issue because you have to be away from the diversity - that can get very costly, but that is about it. No need to save up 2 mio. $ for 5 kids for their college degrees in gender studies and SJW-communications.

Though it's true that disposable incomes are not anywhere near as advertised and k-selects react to that.

My point, which I should probably have been clearer about, was that the exact people who should be having more kids are also the ones who realize how precarious their financial situation is, and how it is increasingly not financially tenable to have children.

The government should be providing large tax incentives to married couples who have children, and shifting the burden to childless people over the age of 30, among other things.

RE: Single women in their 30s/40s are starting to realize they will die alone
Germany has free education and lower tax for married couple with kids.

But who wants to marry? Aware men are scared of the court system, and many white, college educated women dont want to have kids before it is too late.

I have a small social circle, but I know first hand men who have been fleeced by greedy, (some even church going) women.

My best bet would be to get an attractive women pregnant and let hormones evacuate all feminist thoughts from her head. I do not see a different route here.

My biggest obstacle for this would be real estate: I just cannot afford to buy a place for 4 people in my city of choice.

Not really. Whether you like Obamacare or not, it has made the health insurance situation a lot less precarious. If the breadwinner becomes unemployed, the family hops onto Obamacare and gets a subsidy. (The program is income-tested, not means-tested.)

To your broader point, no, I would not want to try raising a family on a single income in the U.S. in this day and age. Employment in this country is easy come, easy go. But many times, the wife can do some flexible work from home to smooth the way.

Unfortunately, many young people start out with low incomes, a lot of student debt, and an addiction to consumerism, and that makes the idea of having kids pretty daunting.

You could probably afford a house that is 20min away from city center in a midsize market, same situation as in France, where there is a number of great cities that are more than 4x cheaper than Paris.

edit: looking at current prices across German big cities, I am shocked at how affordable they ar! Hamburg, Berlin or Cologne are 3x-4x cheaper than Paris!

RE: Single women in their 30s/40s are starting to realize they will die alone
I think you can have a family on one income...but the key is having an income stream outside of wage income. Having $4k/mo. in dividend income on top of your wage income makes this a reality outside of the major American cities.

The problem is it takes high income, excellent investing, and most importantly TIME to achieve this. By the time you can realistically achieve this you’re in your 30’s or later (barring a tremendous early inheritance or unbelievably high wage income). The sense of urgency to find a feminine woman who wants kids becomes overwhelming and disappointing at this stage.

And she’s going to have to understand that you control the finances and there won’t be materialistic spending. Good luck convincing American women of this.

Houses start at 800k €, probably shitholes

Not every city is Munich, but the Median-income in Germany for a 2 adult household is 2k-2.5k AFTER taxes. How do you buy property with that income? You don't.

RE: Single women in their 30s/40s are starting to realize they will die alone
A central issue is opportunity cost - ie the foregone earnings of a stay at home mother.

The greater the potential earnings of a mother, the greater the (opportunity) cost of her staying at home.

This of course is one more reason for women to marry up. A female marketing manager would make the same money whether she married a cubicle programmer or an investment banker. If she stays at home though, then the proportional opportunity cost is barely noticeable if she marries the banker, whereas it blows a massive hole in the finances if she marries the programmer and stays at home.

Education and earning power expand a man's choice of possible mates.

Education and earning power diminish a woman's choice of possible mates.

The stay-at-home mom set-up only really works when you have kids under age 5.

Once all the kids are in school, it's best if the wife gets at least a part-time job. This is the way my parents did it in the old days. First, it gave them extra money, obviously.

But it also gave us kids some freedom and responsibility after school, which kids need. We got to develop our sports and music skills and learn how to be mature. We didn't have mom and dad breathing down our necks, like a lot of kids today. They would leave us "to-do" lists, so we learned how to take care of the some of the basics in life (folding laundry, thawing meat, and -- in my case -- fixing things).

Conversely, I have a brother who has a permanent stay-at-home wife. His youngest is now in third grade, but she's still home all the time, acting as if they're still all in diapers.

This is creating problems. First off, she has little to do, so she spends a lot of money. This means he has to work more, which means more stress. But more importantly, the kids are under a microscope 24/7 with her always around. This is making them neurotic. EVERY little thing they do is observed and analyzed by her. What they wear. What they eat as snacks. No one needs that level of parenting.

There are drawbacks to having a stay-at-home wife, just as there are to having a wife with a power job. A happy medium is best here. It's important to remember that kids are humans, not just lumps of clay to be molded by adults. They need some amount of leeway in life.

On the subject of women working, watch the following video from about 26.28 until the end to see how Christopher Hitchens deals with an Australian feminist interviewer. The way it should be done.

RE: Single women in their 30s/40s are starting to realize they will die alone





The mornin' sun touched lightly on the eyes of Lucy Jordan

In her white suburban bedroom, in a white suburban town

As she lay there 'neath the covers, dreaming of a thousand lovers

'Til the world turned to orange and the room went spinnin' round



At the age of 37, she realized she'd never ride through Paris

In a sports car, with the warm wind in her hair

And she let the phone keep ringin' as she sat there softly singin'

Pretty nursery rhymes she'd memorized in her daddy's easy chair



Her husband, he was off to work, and the kids were off to school

And there were oh so many ways for her to spend her day

She could clean the house for hours, or rearrange the flowers

Or run naked down the shady street screaming all the way



At the age of 37, she realized she'd never ride through Paris

In a sports car, with the warm wind in her hair

And she let that phone keep ringin' as she sat there softly singin'

Pretty nursery rhymes she'd memorized in her daddy's easy chair



The evening sun touched gently on the eyes of Lucy Jordan

On the rooftop where she'd climbed when all the laughter grew too loud

And she bowed and curtsy to the man, who reached and offered her his hand

And led her down to the long white car that waited past the crowd



At the age of 37, she knew she'd found forever as they rode along through Paris

With the warm wind in her hair

Ooooohhh yes with the wind in her hair oooooohhhh

The problem is it takes high income, excellent investing, and most importantly TIME to achieve this. By the time you can realistically achieve this you’re in your 30’s or later (barring a tremendous early inheritance or unbelievably high wage income). The sense of urgency to find a feminine woman who wants kids becomes overwhelming and disappointing at this stage.

And she’s going to have to understand that you control the finances and there won’t be materialistic spending. Good luck convincing American women of this.

The stay-at-home mom set-up only really works when you have kids under age 5.

Once all the kids are in school, it's best if the wife gets at least a part-time job. This is the way my parents did it in the old days. First, it gave them extra money, obviously.

But it also gave us kids some freedom and responsibility after school, which kids need. We got to develop our sports and music skills and learn how to be mature. We didn't have mom and dad breathing down our necks, like a lot of kids today. They would leave us "to-do" lists, so we learned how to take care of the some of the basics in life (folding laundry, thawing meat, and -- in my case -- fixing things).

Conversely, I have a brother who has a permanent stay-at-home wife. His youngest is now in third grade, but she's still home all the time, acting as if they're still all in diapers.

This is creating problems. First off, she has little to do, so she spends a lot of money. This means he has to work more, which means more stress. But more importantly, the kids are under a microscope 24/7 with her always around. This is making them neurotic. EVERY little thing they do is observed and analyzed by her. What they wear. What they eat as snacks. No one needs that level of parenting.

There are drawbacks to having a stay-at-home wife, just as there are to having a wife with a power job. A happy medium is best here. It's important to remember that kids are humans, not just lumps of clay to be molded by adults. They need some amount of leeway in life.

I have to disagree DOBA.

Looking after kids and running a home is a full-time job - if done correctly.

I'll just mention a couple of things - as examples.

Looking after the kids when they get sick - occurs more often than you probably think.

Preparation of fresh, nutritious and varied meals for a family.

Networking with other wives in the neighbourhood, helping to build a sense of community - a key role of women.

These were just the first items which occurred to me from my own happy childhood. I could expand the list.

We had plenty of freedom to grow. We actually spent our free time playing outside with other children, which was much more possible than is typical today, because mothers would keep an eye out for each other's small children.

Education can mostly be done by schools - supported by the family - but raising kids is for the family and not to be outsourced to the state or any commercial organization. Otherwise the family is asking for its own dissolution and the extermination of its values.

RE: Single women in their 30s/40s are starting to realize they will die alone
I think a woman that puts her kids, husband and home first, but with a legitimate skill that can be done part time or full time, and in any market would be a very useful wife. So something like X-ray tech, dental hygienist, etc. These pay respectable wages and are not hard to get certified.

A man working a skilled trade or less sexy white collar job, and with a wife like that in a normal place to live (Grand Rapids, Colorado Springs, Boise, Spokane, Chattanooga, etc.) can live a very comfortable life. They may not have fuck you money right away, but who gives a shit about keeping up with the Joneses. The Joneses are all retards, and they'd be living the American Dream.

With patience/proper investing and a lower cost of living, one day they would have fuck you money.

This is a great post, This lifestyle is still achievable in the US/Canada today especially in 2nd/3rd tier cities. There’s a lot of doom and gloom information about western women on here that discourages guys from entering relationships with them and some of it is true but there’s still good women out there. The key is to settle with these women when they’re young and it’s best that you live where she grew up so she has pressure to conform and “act right”. I’m in my late 30s now and my female friends who are the happiest all settled in their 20s, some after being a bit wild in their younger years but now they take pride in their family lifestyles and overall are pretty decent wives.

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.

I will be 41 this next summer. I think 26-32 is a good age range for me. In regards to women.

I'm in the same age range and I agree. I think for men in our age range late 20's to early 30's is good. Unfortunately many of the women our age are finally growing up and seeing the writing on the wall and start behaving a lot better, but it is too late for many to have children.

RE: Single women in their 30s/40s are starting to realize they will die alone
I don't live in the U.S. anymore but i'm kind of curious what 2nd or 3rd tier cities still have a decent number of U.S. women who are marriage material?

I've been to a lot of small and large cities everywhere around the U.S. and obesity, thot culture, and just general cultural decay seems to be endemic everywhere.

It is a nation and civilization in slow motion collapse. A frog being boiled.
