Why is the US marriage rate falling sharply?
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-16274740


Quote:Chicago Tribune syndicated advice columnist Amy Dickinson believes the increase in no-fault divorces and tougher child support laws are two reasons behind the falling popularity of married life in America.

Quote:Happily unmarried...
Jessica Bennett

"Women don't necessarily need a husband to make ends meet or to raise children. They can do a lot of these things on their own.
You go girl!

American men are getting smarter! After what my son saw me lose ($$$) in my family's divorce...he has vowed to never marry...

My kids went from a comfortable middle class lifestyle to barely above poverty because of the court ordered alimony...we have destroyed the family in the US. I blame feminism....

May be men are getting smarter and protecting themselves and their assets better, divorce always always works for the woman and the man gets reamed.
The law changes makes it virtually impossible for women to find partners that are dumb enough to marry or move in together. Women have shot themselves in the foot, no man will expose himself to being reamed financially and cleaned out by a woman.

Quote:251.Old Mr Boston

Feminism is winning. The State now provides the support that husbands used to. The State now sanctions artificial insmeination. Women want to play all the roles. Divorce laws mean that men are forced to support wives for the rest of their lives. Who supports men? Who wants men? Result: fewer long-lasting families and smaller, rarer permanent family groups. Feminists: you didn't expect this.

RE: Why is the US marriage rate falling sharply?
I think it's a combination of things.

More women are becoming spinsters, ignorantly thinking it's empowering them to live their empty lives the way they want.

Men are realizing how risky married life can be, and aren't willing to accept the consequences.

Common sense tells us that with women, it's going to catch up with them once they're old and empty.

It's only a matter of time before we see start seeing a steep decline in US birth rates; to the benefit of men, at least at first.

Why do you say to the benefit of men at least at first?

Won't men suffer under the consequences of fewer women born into each new generation? Fewer younger women = more competition for men

It makes sense it would benefit men at first. Less women having babies=less women with fucked up bodies and husbands. So there would be more single women, and with better bodies from not having kids. At least that's how I took it. Not sure if that is that Gmac means or not.

RE: Why is the US marriage rate falling sharply?
Back in the day, marriage was pretty much a necessity for women. It was either that or become a maid for the rest of their lives. For most men, marriage was pretty much the only way to get any pussy. Neither of these things are the case in America any more, plus you add feminism into the equation which made marriage a huge risk for men and convinced women that their biological urge to have children was nothing but a product of social conditioning.

The U.S has a fairly healthy birthrate at the moment compared to the other Western countries, but this is largely due to hispanic immigrants. If the non-hispanic white birth rate plummets, expect even greater demand for immigrants from south of the border.

not necessarily true. the female value declines as she ages. after a certain point socially dominant males will not want her ...I say 37+ (in the US).

at that point they become super desperate and either become mistress material or lonely spinsters.

Quote:"There has been a realisation among college-educated Americans that marriage is actually a pretty good idea, even if they don't like to talk about it in public," argues Bradford Wilcox.

Yeah right. Speak for yourself buddy.

I think something that doesn't get mentioned in the media is how most young Americans who are in their 20s-30s now saw their parents constantly working and miserable to pay for their mortgage and kids. The only recreational activity is crashing in front of the TV after work.

I don't think any young person with even a little bit of awareness who saw that growing up would be in a hurry to jump in. You can easily choose to spend your adult life doing more interesting things than hitting the same pussy every night (at least for the first few years of marriage anyway, then the woman will stop giving that up).

This assumes the best years already didn't pass us by in the 1970's-80's after the sexual revolution - now all we have are the leftovers: old spinsters and a scarcity of young daughters.

The women that are born here are garbage anyway.

What kind of woman is she going to be who is raised only by her mother?

Why do you think so many Ukrainian are getting imported here? It's not just because the women are "hot". Ukrainians are pure white.

White American women would get off on the fact that guys want them. They are not producing any kids, they rather starve all the guys around them and get an ego trip.

It's EASY to get a green card if you're an Ukrainian. Either if you're a woman that's coming here for marriage or if you're a guy(winning the green card lottery).

P.S. Yes I know Ukrainians apply in huge numbers for the green card because somebody will bust out a data sheet.

Here's a reason why the marriage rate SHOULD continue to fall, with us men gladly opting out:

RE: Why is the US marriage rate falling sharply?
The USA like other western Countries birthrates are negative. Don't believe the hype yes immigrants fill the void but statistics are manipulated to give the impression there is natural growth from the native natural population.

The court system has a lot to do with declining marriage but people still like to look the other way when trying to see the obvious reasons. That feminism goal of reducing Male dominance on wealth and capital has lead to the decline of marriage in American. The court system is just taking money away from Men that HAVE IT, and have falling into the bear trap of Marriage. What about the millions of Men whom simply don't measure up to the inflated desires of American women. Men are the most likely to be unemployed, jailed, or killed the system works against Males to become prosperous. This in my mind is the biggest reason that marriage has gone to the gutter, and has largely been the hidden goal of feminism all along. Grow the state, grow the status of women and subjugate men so they will be unable to challenge either..
