70% of Men Aged 20-34 in America Are Not Married

Postby jamesbond » March 8th, 2015, 6:19 pm

Seventy percent of American males between the ages of 20 and 34 are not married, and many live in a state of “perpetual adolescence” with ominous consequences for the nation’s future, says Janice Shaw Crouse, author of “Marriage Matters.”

“Far too many young men have failed to make a normal progression into adult roles of responsibility and self-sufficiency, roles generally associated with marriage and fatherhood,” Crouse, the former executive director of the Beverly LaHaye Institute, wrote in a recent Washington Times oped.

The high percentage of bachelors means bleak prospects for millions of young women who dream about a wedding day that may never come. “It’s very, very depressing,” Crouse told CNSNews.com. “They’re not understanding how important it is for the culture, for society, for the strength of the nation to have strong families.”

After decades of feminism, Crouse noted that young men are now the ones who set the parameters for intimate relationships, and those increasingly do not include a wedding ring.

“And I know the feminists just yell and scream if you say anything like this, but time was, girls set the cultural morays, the standards, the parameters for intimate activity. The girls were the ones that set those boundaries. And now it’s the guys who do,” Crouse told CNSNews.com.

“And it’s doubly terrible because the colleges now are predominantly female. So you have some – up to 60 percent of the student bodies are female. And almost all of them are more than 50 percent female. And so the ratio [of] male/female is out of sync.

According to “projections based on census data, when today’s young adults reach their mid-40s to mid-50s, a record high share (25%) is likely to have never been married,” Pew Research noted in a 2014 study documenting the decline of marriage in the U.S.

But men are not entirely to blame for the steep decline in marriage, Crouse pointed out. “A lot of women fear marriage. While feminism is a spent force, the ultimate consequences of that philosophy is a whole generation of women who don’t want any man to tell them what to do, and don’t really understand the give and take that is necessary for a marriage relationship.”

“And that means the girls have to live by the guys’ demands. And that means less romance. They don’t date. The girls, I have talked to numerous young women, lament the fact that they don’t have the opportunity to dress up and go out for an event.”

“Feminism was supposed to bring women happiness,” Crouse said. “But the research shows that women today are much more unhappy then they have been in the past. They’ve ended up with far more opportunities, but their personal happiness is way down.”

The tl;dr version: "Come back to the plantation! No, please!"

The author should get slapped for writing this. Oh, they understand how important it is...what they aren't is willing to sacrifice themselves for a system that seeks for their destruction.

Wall, feminists. Feminists, meet wall.

This women is clueless. The problem rest 90% on women. They have little to no interest in dating men. Men want to go out with women, it's the women that don't have any desire to go out with men. The article is totally one-sided. If women end up unhappy it is their fault because they created this asexual no marriage environment. :evil:

This article, despite its underhanded way of blaming men, appears to corroborate with my Columbia University theory.

http://www.happierabroad.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=25683

Basically, the joint undergraduate Columbia-Barnard student body is 2:1 female to male, however, many of those women are un-dateable & f-cked up, and thus, Columbia guys go to other campus parties to find dates.

Thus, what happened at Columbia, circa 1989, is going to take over the entire USA by 2025. This down tick in marriages is only the start.
16 years ago, the Best Picture of 1999, "American Beauty", telegraphed the message of Happier Abroad to the world.

Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.

BTW, despite settling down with an AW, myself, the warning is still in effect.

Did you go to Columbia to college? I didn't realize how f***ed up Columbia is, but this explains a girl I recently dated. She was Japanese and had a graduate business degree from Columbia. Because I was well traveled and we had some common interests, I had 2 dates with her. She came across as almost asexual and was obsessed with her career.

Is it correct to conclude that the more liberal or high status the university is the more feminized it would be?

What I find with American women is the total lack of interest in sex. The author would like us to believe that American men are "getting the milk without buying the cow" thus men don't want to marry them. The reason men don't want to marry women is because the "cow provides no milk!" They have no interest in sex and many are cows...... and very stubborn cows; women who are confrontational. They are more interested in their career than being a wife or a mother. There is basically no reason to get married. The down tick in marriages is just the tip of the iceberg of the ice age that is coming!

I've gotten few Columbia graduate level courses but I'm not interested in completing a Masters from them. The place is a complete turn off, though the academics are pretty good.

And yes, most women there are f'cked up. I'm sure that that Japanese woman will completely take over her future husband's life and abuse him badly. Now that I think about, I believe that that's already happened to a friend of a friend, about 2 degrees of separation, at Columbia.

But I think Columbia is a strange animal in the sense that it eclipses all of its other co-ed elite schools like Harvard, Cornell, Yale, Duke, etc. A lot of it, I feel, is its connection to NYC. Being in NYC, seems to bring out the worst in these power politics/victim mentality whack job Femi-Nazis. It's hard to be noticed as some young juggernaut in a city where everyone wants to be *something*. And thus, a psychosis develops. The problem is that it's campus wide. I will never set foot on that campus again. Fortunately, the only ppl I know, who're still studying there, live in apartments off-campus. In fact, I might even meet 'em in New Jersey over the city, for I've lost my affinity for that place. Pretenders and wannabes don't impress me anymore and that's the soul of Manhattan, outside of the already well off bankers, media stars, and general rich ppl.

"Being a woman means whatever the f**k I want, and don't you dare say a word about it. If you don't support my body positivity, perpetual outrage, and armpit hair, you are a mysogynist pig who should be buried in sewage.

...

Being a man means 'manning up' and providing for a woman, so do that already you manbabies."

I don't care what your personal views on being a [whatever] are, how is this not obvious, disgustingly hypocritical entitlement? How does it make it out of one's head, onto a keyboard/camera, and then onto the internet, without the person who wrote it slapping themselves in the face and deleting it for the sheer stupidity? How are there art projects about male entitlement getting carried on major websites with this sort of tripe being published by major websites simultaneously?

Very well said...Pure main stream propaganda. One sided diabolical look at things ....a good guy looses in the end in lame stream world...today or tomorrow...it is bound to happen..it didn't happen to your parents..but it will happen to you or to your child...its inevitable ....Americans are not that stupid as the media makes out...if you ask, any one of the 70% unmarried guys...the lame stream papers will not have the balls to print it.

I don't understand why American's still bother with lame stream society, media, government - There is overwhelming evidence that America is the most dangerous country for Americans.

Blacks have a Unwed Single Mother Rate of 72%.

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/39993685/ns/health-womens_health/t/blacks-struggle-percent-unwed-mothers-rate/#.VQGpF46rEg8

"Seventy-two percent of black babies are born to unmarried mothers today, according to government statistics. Other groups: 17 percent of Asians, 29 percent of whites, 53 percent of Hispanics."

-Newsflash-
Asians chicks make the best families in America and Blacks make the worst. According to news and math.

The Asians used to have only 10% unwed so maybe they are slipping ? this is plain RACISM against the black man.

Very interesting stats thanks for posting this information. I always assumed Asians were least likely to have kids out of wedlock and I found out that it's true! What can you say about blacks having an unwed birth rate of 72%, that is unbelievable. The black culture in America is really messed up big time.

Yes Moretorque,

Math and NBC News are teaming up with Racism against the Back man. Because the 72% of Black children are born to single mothers. Excellent point.

Or

No Moretorque,

The belief in Feminism has failed in the Black Women.
