Any time there is a problem the correct answer is to blame men or whites.

The reason marriage and birthrates are down is obvious, because of rampant feminism.

Females would rather be alone and childless, or at least rather engage in short term encounters, than date and marry a man that she doesn't see at least two levels above her. No matter how aged, overweight or monstrous looking, and deficient in personality, females all believe they are entitled to a man who is exceptionally attractive and financially successful. Now, if you are an exceptionally attractive male why would you want a long term relationship and anything more than a hook up with a rather unattractive female with a poor personality?

But hey, that's just me.

Me either. The only thing I can think of is there will be somebody to call an ambulance when you stroke out.

Divorce rates are also dropping, from 4.8 per thousand in 1992 down to 3.2 per thousand in 2016. Those who are getting married are more happy with each other, it appears.

I blame Tinder.

Why buy the car when you can rent a new one every day? And that probably goes for both sexes.

She wanted to be a stay at home mom. She can go to work any time she wants to. Since I love her, all I want for her, is for her to be happy. I have more than enough to support her and our 3 kids, so why should I care if we are “equal partners in financially supporting and raising our kids”?

This makes me “not worth marrying”?

Most dudes ain't bringing home anesthesiologist pay either.

Maybe your daughter should entice those men with something they find to be appealing for them to leave their basements? If is a big turn off when a below average intelligence females bring up their degrees at the slightest opportunity as though men give a dime or that degree proves something other than jumping through the hoops. Some college educated women on the slow side of things are like living poster girls for modern college education yet their egos are like A-bomb mushroom clouds. Women do not give the men what they want and develop nasty attitudes on top of that, men stay in basements. Simple. At the end the number of college educated women will reach a critical point and the things will fall apart.

I'll wear one of those life alert buttons and hope for the best rather than get married.

Doesn’t matter. Read the post I responded to, and my response. It had nothing to do with how much I make. It had to do with a statement that was absurd.

What pathetic excuse for a man needs to be enticed to get out of the basement? If today's young men feel like that, no wonder the young women are giving up on them.

Saint-Ex put it well. "To be a man is, precisely, to be responsible. It is to feel shame at the sight of what seems to be unmerited misery. It is to take pride in a victory won by one's comrades. It is to feel, when setting one's stone, that one is contributing to the building of the world."

If they put down the controller and go contribute to the building of the world, young women will seek them out - as equals. And no one has to entice the other into becoming an adult human being. It's the damn baseline.
