Men scarce, so women settle for less

That was an actual headline in the Domion Post today. The story goes like this:

Callister said the most significant finding of his research was a 10 per cent increase in the past two decades in highly educated women marrying men with fewer qualifications and, in many cases, lower-paid jobs.

This had happened largely because of a lack of eligible partners of equal educational or economic status, he said.
In many cases women are marrying men with lower paid jobs? They must be truly, truly desperate.

  1. I saw that and was silently seething.

  2. You mean the economic/educational elitism of it?
    or that it has a sort of a sexist assumption about how women approach marriage?

    the first one was the one that struck me.
