You can click over and read the whole thing, but here are the parts that stuck out to me.

"One reason less-educated women are having children out of wedlock is that college-educated men are not interested in marrying them."

Which is then followed by

"Women without college degrees see a dearth of husband options around them. "

_____________

So is she unmarriable?

Or can she not find someone worthy of marrying?

Or could it be the Alpha who was able to pump her and dump her, doesn't want her?

And her choices are the betas willing to raise another man's child?

hmmm

Good post.
Quote:"Second, marriage is increasingly something only educated people do."
It's tough to pull general conclusions from such a diverse population as the entire US, but here goes:

1. Marriage is something people do for kids. If there's already kids, there's no need for marriage.

2. Marriage is something women facing the wall and potential infertility do. If God-forbid she doesn't use the 18 year Federal Law contract, she might as well get him into a State Law contract.

3. Marriage is something "smarter" women do (less daddy-issues? IDK?) because they know, while the government will provide $, it's no substitute for a man.

4. Marriage is something men without enough options do. We all know women who all of a sudden "matured" in their late 20's and stopped partying as much. Guess who they settle down with. Not the dude getting all the chics. They settle with Mr Nice Guy who's banged 1-2 chics in his life, both of whom left him. The boys banging the high school hotties go on to continue to bang younger bitches and instinctively know they don't want to invest in a depreciating asset.


Quote:Women without college degrees see a dearth of husband options around them. Incarceration rates are higher among the poor, and even low-income men tend to view marriage as something they should only do after they get a good job.
I chuckled...I think the author meant "dearth of cock options"...she's so close in seeing the relationships of young hot poor women falling for the future incarcerated of 'merica.

True alphas never marry career women.

Whether you believe these men are alphas are not, let's not start an argument, but it's true that powerful men always have a subservient women behind them who 'sacrifices' her career for his. (As it should be)

-Barack Obama
-Actually, every president ever besides the Clintons and probably why he cheated.
-Kobe Bryant

etc.

Any man who rises to the top of his field, almost always has a out of the spotlight wife.

I for one have no desire to date or marry a career women. The very concept of that deflates my boner.

All I give a fuck about is:

-Are you a smokeshow?
-Are you feminine and do you take care of your body etc?
-Are you loyal (to the extent that women can be)?
-Can you cook?
-Are you willing to back me 100% if shit hits the fan?
-Are you willing to back me in my pursuit of my goals?

Is this 'selfish'?

Probably.

Do I care?

Not at all.

The irony is the women I've found who fit this description are HAPPIER doing these things, then the career minded 'independent' girls.

RE: Poor Women Don't wait for Marriage (Atlantic)
I think part of it is that lower class women have all these princessy expectations about getting married, and the men they're attracting can't meet those demands. She'll fuck and even date men who are unemployed or barely getting by, but she can't stomach MARRYING a man like that, perhaps because that's conceding that's the best she'll ever get.

The girl subconsciously wants a baby, the dude is a dumb fuck, and bam, now you have bastard babies.

The path to marriage is open to these women, they just don't want to put in the work that entails. Stay thin, cook for a man, be pleasant, fuck often. That's more than enough to secure a decent husband for non-ugly women.

RE: Poor Women Don't wait for Marriage (Atlantic)
There are lots of benefits to marrying a woman with out a college degree. I've known some excellent ones who never went to college.

Above all, college is where most women first get exposed to all this feminist claptrap. They learn about "rape culture" and other bullshit from Marxist college professors. The more "elite" the college is, the worse it is.

America's divorce culture has a far worse impact on lower classes, especially African Americans.

As a really smart guy, I used to think I had to have a really smart girl. I have found really smart girls to be more judgmental and less accepting than girls with average brains.

The less options women have, the better. Women who come from poorer countries are much more well behaved than women from wealthy countries. Let's face it, women were much more well behaved when they did not have freedom and did not have the ability to live independently from men. It's inevitable that society will go back to this, because it's natural. Feminism is a cancer that destroys society. When society collapses, it is men who rebuild it. Hopefully the next men who rebuild society won't be stupid enough to give women freedom again.

RE: Poor Women Don't wait for Marriage (Atlantic)
The poor have always bred with more fecundity than the rich. Always have, always will. There are many reasons for this.

Harried with difficult lives, sex is a big release;
For many poor women, getting pregnant makes sense, in that they can sponge benefits off the government and not work;
Poor women have less delusions about wasting their feminine energies on career bullshit;
Less access to health care service and birth control options;

No big revelations here. This has been going on for thousands of years.

Men are not attracted to power-suit wearing, "strong" career women. Men want feminine women who know how to behave like women.

I could only imagine being married to a career woman if she let me fuck young hotties on the side at least once a month. Otherwise no way. I'm pretty sure forum member Vicious has this deal with his woman if I'm not mistaken.

What the article also fails to mention are the actual birthrates. College educated women have fewer children than "uneducated" women. College women are corrupted into a careerist materialistic lifestyle and feminist power-trip.

Just how smart are "educated" women if they are going extinct? Seems pretty stupid to me.

RE: Poor Women Don't wait for Marriage (Atlantic)
I think a lot of it is because the marriageable men (guys who earn enough to maintain a family) have been misled into believing that they should only marry career women. I remember a statistic which said that almost all marriages of college-educated grooms in America were to college-educated brides (and vice-versa). Men who've been to college will be hesitant to date or marry a woman who hasn't.

Like many on this forum have said before me, rich educated women work as a cartel to misinform educated men into behaving in a way that will benefit only the rich educated women.

RE: Poor Women Don't wait for Marriage (Atlantic)
Written by a well off woman who does not understand what it is to be poor. The reasons why a poor woman in america does not get married have nothing to do with personality traits, but economics.

1. In America, it is a financial detriment for a poor single woman to get married and a huge bonus for her to have a child out of wedlock. Bear with me for two examples

a) Latonya, who makes $25k/year has a child outside of marriage. Here are the gifts she now gets for being a low income single mother: low income housing eligibility, a much larger earned income tax credit, food stamps, free healthcare for her and her child, subsidized daycare, education grants and a state that will chase down the father for child support because she is on these programs. Its my job to do that math on this stuff and those benefits are equivalent to what someone making $46 to 50k per year would purchase out of pocket and have the same net disposable income as Latonya with her bastard child.

b) Lets say Latonya gets married and her husband makes $35k and she stays at home to raise their 1 child together. Guess what programs they are eligible for now? None. A few hundred dollars of EITC but none of the other things because Latonya chooses to stay at home. If she went to work her income would just go to child care. Furthermore, they would have less disposable income as there are 3 people that need to live off of that income and Latonya has to deal with another adult in her life vs. banging whomever she feels like after her baby goes to sleep.

So, in summary, a poor married woman has less freedom and less income than a single woman with a child out of wedlock in america, THAT is why they don't get married. Also, these people aren't dumb, they know what the benefits are and they know how to work them. My friend's own section 8 properties and the single mom's that live there will go out and work a few weeks of the year and then quit so they can get just enough earned income to qualify for housing, a big EITC bonus and food stamps. If they don't work at all they get nothing, but if they work too much they lose it.

If there was no government incentive for these women I guarantee they would be getting married as just a means for survival.

Edit: The whole 'college degree men, don't want to marry college-less women' is also just a lie to make career women feel better. If you can find a girl that hasn't gone to college, but also isn't mouth breathing, 4-loko drinking criminal she will be, young and less indoctrinated about women's rights and likely have some domestic skills as she has left high school and lived on her own without daddy's college fund. My most enjoyable relationships have been with women who did not have a college education or went as mature students.

Like Christian said which I point to in bold, is absolutely right. I've found a woman like this, she was raised conservatively on a farm, and though I met her while she was in college, she doesn't like the idea of making a career out of her life. She wants to work as a fitness instructor until she has kids then possibly homeschool them. She cooks and bakes very well too. She is not poor nor rich, but knows not to live beyond her means. Its also great that she backs me all the way.

They are out there gentlemen. And he's absolutely right about their happiness. She loves the fact about this future for herself. We get so downtrodden by the idea that all women are out to belittle and or use us but there is some hope left in some of the women out there. I think that we just need to look in the right places.

RE: Poor Women Don't wait for Marriage (Atlantic)
Poor couples largely get married for the wedding gifts. They don't understand holding a $20,000 wedding to get $12,000 in wedding gifts is a money loser. They just plow ahead anyway, registering at those overpriced gift registries, sure that they're going to get rich from all the guests they're going to invite, same as they're sure they're going to get rich every time they buy a lottery ticket. And the poor are the worst of all at managing and nurturing lump money payments. No matter how many thousands they get in wedding gifts, it'll all be blown through in two months. Then whatever wasn't cash will end up in the pawn shop.

I've seen poor couples get married to get furniture for their apartment as their wedding gift. Which quickly was stained and ripped to hell. And then they got divorced within six months. Total "trial marriage". The parents could have saved so much money by just writing a check for the furniture and telling them to try co-habitating first.

There's this crazy "ain't my money" thinking where the children want to spend as much as possible of their parent's money to hold the largest wedding possible to get the most wedding gifts possible. The smarter parents I've seen cut this madness off and just write a lump sum check to the bride. Suddenly with this money already in hand to spend on the wedding, she actually does the math and sees spending all that cash to get less in gifts doesn't add up. Getting married for $25 at City Hall is suddenly an option. And the parents can pressure that money to be put into a house down payment instead, since their name is still on the check (and it'll bounce if the parents don't put enough into checking to cover it). Whereas all those gift checks that come in addressed to the couple responsibility free just get frittered away like mad money on worthless crap.

For many poor children, the last time they are able to tap mom and dad for cash is by holding a wedding, so of COURSE they will get married. To them, it's free money.

RE: Poor Women Don't wait for Marriage (Atlantic)
Its understandable why men would want to get married, it's not necessarily a beta move. Having routine sex with a high quality woman is a better option that playing the Russian Roulette with one night stands and fuck buddies. Of course this is one perspective, personally I think a lot of men have to realise that the rules of marriage have changed. The provider, protecter role is no longer a uniquely cherished masculine quality.

I know of these naive guys who are just waiting to be picked up by the nearest average looking woman who would like them. So they can get a comfortable job and "do the right thing". I see marriage working with a red pill woman, who is a virgin or has had the minimum of two sexual partners, if anything they could add to your value (Albeit not something you should rely on , being external).

However this is a unrealistic expectation in the West, which explains why a lot of men are going to Asia to find wives. While the "successful" women become bitter, after saturating themselves with feminist rhetoric, to deal with the stresses of work; which men take in their stride. The poor women take the rational choice of opting for benefits and the beta males end up metaphorically castrated, a mere clown to be mocked by the media.

I know that this is the language people use these days, but can we make an effort to do away with using the word "register" in this context?

Making an "I'm getting married, so give me free stuff" list abuses the verb to register.

Women love to say stuff like "we have to go register at Bed, Bath and Beyond this weekend."

Sorry bitch. You aren't registering at all. You're just running around a store with a UPC scanner and making a list of things that you will more or less demand that other people give you.

If I ever get married, the only wedding gifts accepted will be checks made out to a charity of my choosing. Hell, I'll use the money to build a school for children who have virtually nothing.

I am a man. I don't live in a period of time when people got married young and absolutely depending on help from friends and relatives to acquire the essentials that they would need to manage an effective household. If I get married, it will be because I am in a good financial position to do so. I won't ask to charity or straight up gifts from people who maybe haven't even talked to me in years.

Women love to use the word "register" to describe create a "give me, give me" list because it disguises begging as an administrative task that is one of the many important things they have to do before getting married.

Newsflash: planning a wedding is not tough unless you make it tough. 95% of the headaches in planning weddings are invented my women and are entirely unnecessary. You don't have to register this weekend at Bed, Bath and Beyond. You want to because you like getting free stuff from your parent's friends.

Let's do away with the misuse of the word "register." Let's call it what it is. This weekend I need to go "beg for free stuff to decorate my house with at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Stupid bitches.

In a society where women understand their role and responsibilities, marriage is a great option. Because women take value that extends beyond sexual satisfaction away from a marriage, in theory, a guy can net a higher value woman as a wife than as a quick lay, as most of the quick lays go to the top 5%.

Of course, this doesn't work in an "all about me" "you can have it all" society where women in no way understand or respect their responsibilities.

If consistent sex is part of the deal, the average guy has an option to deal with his sexual needs efficiently and save his energy for projects that offer more than physical satisfaction. In a society where most guys will be marrying and having sex with hotter women than they would otherwise consistently bedding, this makes a great deal of sense.

But in a society where women have sex only when they want it and with whom they want it, this doesn't work at all and men are better off not committing to a woman at all, since in marriages where a woman feels no obligation to cheerfully satisfy her man, she's just a net taker. She's committed nothing.

There is no such thing as poverty in America. Even the "poor" people in America have houses with A/C, hot water, 24 hour electricity, high speed internet, TV, and so on. Along with a massive welfare state to back them up.

You want to see what poverty looks like? Go spend six months living in a rural area in a 3rd world country, so rural that they are not even connected to the electric grid, literally in the middle of the jungle.

Americans think they are "poor" if they're unable to buy 24 inch rims for their car, buy a 50 inch screen TV, eat Burger King 3 times a day, or afford liposuction to suck the fat out of their fat asses.

The crazy thing was, the people I saw in the rural jungle area, they were actually more happy than the average American. I remember the simple and sweet village women, they would smile a lot and seemed genuinely happy and were ultra-feminine. Meanwhile growing up in one of the richest areas of America, I remember the women always had a perma-scowl and seemed very unhappy and mentally disturbed.

I've seen firsthand that money does not buy happiness.

RE: Poor Women Don't wait for Marriage (Atlantic)
Following up on what Christian said, around 10 years ago Maureen Dowd (NY Times opinion writer) wrote several articles about how no one wants to marry her because she is a career woman. She was around 50 and never married then (she dated Michael Douglas at one point, and probably other alphas but none of them wanted to marry tho aloud mouth). Anyway, she's bitter, but her articles have a lot of truth in them.

Quote:Men Just Want Mommy

By MAUREEN DOWD

Published: January 13, 2005

WASHINGTON

A few years ago at a White House Correspondents' dinner, I met a very beautiful actress. Within moments, she blurted out: "I can't believe I'm 46 and not married. Men only want to marry their personal assistants or P.R. women."

I'd been noticing a trend along these lines, as famous and powerful men took up with the young women whose job it was to tend to them and care for them in some way: their secretaries, assistants, nannies, caterers, flight attendants, researchers and fact-checkers.

Women in staff support are the new sirens because, as a guy I know put it, they look upon the men they work for as "the moon, the sun and the stars." It's all about orbiting, serving and salaaming their Sun Gods.

In all those great Tracy/Hepburn movies more than a half-century ago, it was the snap and crackle of a romance between equals that was so exciting. Moviemakers these days seem far more interested in the soothing aura of romances between unequals.

In James Brooks's "Spanglish," Adam Sandler, as a Los Angeles chef, falls for his hot Mexican maid. The maid, who cleans up after Mr. Sandler without being able to speak English, is presented as the ideal woman. The wife, played by Téa Leoni, is repellent: a jangly, yakking, overachieving, overexercised, unfaithful, shallow she-monster who has just lost her job with a commercial design firm. Picture Faye Dunaway in "Network" if she'd had to stay home, or Glenn Close in "Fatal Attraction" without the charm.

The same attraction of unequals animated Richard Curtis's "Love Actually," a 2003 holiday hit. The witty and sophisticated British prime minister, played by Hugh Grant, falls for the chubby girl who wheels the tea and scones into his office. A businessman married to the substantial Emma Thompson falls for his sultry secretary. A writer falls for his maid, who speaks only Portuguese.

(I wonder if the trend in making maids who don't speak English heroines is related to the trend of guys who like to watch Kelly Ripa in the morning with the sound turned off?)

Art is imitating life, turning women who seek equality into selfish narcissists and objects of rejection, rather than affection.

As John Schwartz of The New York Times wrote recently, "Men would rather marry their secretaries than their bosses, and evolution may be to blame."

A new study by psychology researchers at the University of Michigan, using college undergraduates, suggests that men going for long-term relationships would rather marry women in subordinate jobs than women who are supervisors.

As Dr. Stephanie Brown, the lead author of the study, summed it up for reporters: "Powerful women are at a disadvantage in the marriage market because men may prefer to marry less-accomplished women." Men think that women with important jobs are more likely to cheat on them.

"The hypothesis," Dr. Brown said, "is that there are evolutionary pressures on males to take steps to minimize the risk of raising offspring that are not their own." Women, by contrast, did not show a marked difference in their attraction to men who might work above or below them. And men did not show a preference when it came to one-night stands.

A second study, which was by researchers at four British universities and reported last week, suggested that smart men with demanding jobs would rather have old-fashioned wives, like their mums, than equals. The study found that a high I.Q. hampers a woman's chance to get married, while it is a plus for men. The prospect for marriage increased by 35 percent for guys for each 16-point increase in I.Q.; for women, there is a 40 percent drop for each 16-point rise.

So was the feminist movement some sort of cruel hoax? The more women achieve, the less desirable they are?

Agree2

Women want to be in a relationship with guys they can seriously talk to - unfortunately, a lot of those guys want to be in relationships with women they don't have to talk to.

Ohshit

I asked the actress and writer Carrie Fisher, on the East Coast to promote her novel "The Best Awful," who confirmed that women who challenge men are in trouble.

"I haven't dated in 12 million years," she said drily. "I gave up on dating powerful men because they wanted to date women in the service professions. So I decided to date guys in the service professions. But then I found out that kings want to be treated like kings, and consorts want to be treated like kings, too."

Hell no! Women want relationships where they can spew constant illogical BS and have an alpha man agree with them out of fear of not getting laid.

No woman wants a relationship where there are serious conversations and where lack of logical consistency is pointed out.

No one thinks like that.

Actually, this might be true.

Think about it: Women are naturally attracted to alphas. Are alphas the guys who spend all their time in the office? Nope. They're the ones with game.

So it really makes no difference to women if you're broke fuck or not, all that matters is if you're hot, strong, and have tight game.

I'd say that depends on the end game.

Is she looking for dick or marriage?

RE: Poor Women Don't wait for Marriage (Atlantic)
The article is utter crap.

The reason is not because men are looking for "strong, empowered, educated" wymannn, but that the poor women generally already have a child from a bad-boy Alpha and are single mothers by the time those career-minded Betas are told to look for Mrs. Right. Of course the Betas are also told to look for age-appropriate (gotta vomit here....) women instead of the young hot waitress who might actually make a good wife.

Here is a good take on what is really going in within the different social strata of the population:
http://www.overcomingbias.com/2014/06/fo...turns.html

In short the article shows that basically only the wealthy and educated have stuck to the model of conventional households and married couples. Basically the poorer, the higher the likelihood of the family-destroying agenda to have ripped your semblance of a normal household apart - ghetto-bitches with 3 kids by age 19 being the lowest rungs. It's back to the stone-age mating-habits baby!
