Whatever.
This is why you don't even bother with these kinds of threads. No offence to the OP, but all types of neoconservative, bitter nut jobs come out the woodwork when they get an opportunity to blame women for their singledom.

Family, govt. and even their churches are happy, just as long as they're happy. Not only this, but family courts are so punitive toward men, if the wife gives them the old heave ho. Marriage will continue to dwindle.
Simple solution Birth control and condoms

True. It takes two to make a baby. Augie makes it sound as if it's some sort of subversive movement on women's part, in order to destabilize men.

Sounds like somebody feels threatened by women's gains. Wusses.

Women getting more education slows down the birthrate and contributes to national prosperity and GDP growth globally, according to studies. And did y'all know that once wages stagnated, starting in the 70's (not to mention the recession of that period), women's joining the workforce as a mass phenomenon was essential for maintaining the standard of living in the US? According to economists, it was flat wages, not so much the women's movement, that caused women to seek jobs. Corporate greed is bad news, peeps. CEO's taking all the profits to pay themselves more, without giving employees any reward for their improved productivity.

Good grief OP, I can see why you're single and having issues with women. It's painful watching these posts of yours, you come off like a real jerk who hates women.

Divorce courts do not always favor the woman. Sometimes, they do rule in favor of the man.

And the decline in marriage is partially the result of a poor economy.

Anyways, some men and some women in their twenties are probably focusing on their careers and don't care to be married until late twenties-early thirties.

Awesome film! Cool dude! I couldn't believe what he was saying at first. But his stats don't lie. Definitely eye-opening.

I think it's great women are getting education and waiting longer. Mist people I know wait longer but it has to do with wanting to be financial secure, not because of anti marriage. Most I know married in 30's or later.
