I cannot believe how many women I run into who are single mothers by choice.
I guess the fruits of women's liberation are finally here.
I thought this was the feminist goal?
That's makes them a minority. That makes them a protected class. It's now hate speech to say anything against them.
Being married is slavery and a husband's death causes delight.
Thanks for the subtlety, MSM.
Are they happy?
I like being a stay home mom and wife. It's the best job in the world. I only have to work one job instead of two.
Hell - too many of the women out there not only don't have a husband, or think they don't need a husband - actually couldn't attract an intelligent or responsible husband..
Who in hell wants to marry the current version of "woman" that far too many women in America represent?
Tattooed, half naked in public, jumping into the sack with at the drop of a hat and then burdened with the result of that "free and self expressive" life...
Loud, uncouth, unclean, unnatural, unfeminine, tattoos, bastard children in tow, drug dependent and a potential carrier of STDs...
American women have been ill served by the "feminist" movement..
Look how many men are looking elsewhere for a wife..
Throw in the guys who watch the tube all the time, and the number of spouseless women goes up.
"WHO"S YOUR DADDY NOW?"
Why the government...of course!
Am I inferring correctly from the article that the article thinks women want it this way?
I'd like to know what percent of each sub-group want to be without spouse and what percent want to be with spouse? I'll bet there are significant percentages in both the Yes and No columns.
Group Want to be with a spouse
. . . . . . . Yes No
So one question to ask is why women who want to be with a spouse refuse to settle on a man who wants them and why women hold out for some idealized prince charming.
Another question is why some women do not want to be with a spouse. Do they really prefer the single life? Or have they given up on finding prince charming? Or what?
In both my IT and white collar contacts, and in my blue collar contacts, virtually every available woman wants to be with a spouse, but wants something different/better than the many available men she meets. The available men are typically boring hard workers, nerds, geeks, etc. The women are looking for someone who will both provide money and ENTERTAIN them, be romantic, etc. The hard working available men are not Hugh Grant, not even Fedex.
Makes it sooooo much easier for me to get dates. :)
Always look for the upside to stuff!
Boys especially need a father in the home, both as a role model, and as a disciplinarian. So many social ills can be traced to this phenomenon.
Does that mean 49% of men live without a spouse?
In the distant past, women needed men to hunt the game, plant/harvest the crops, etc.
Men in turn needed a woman to cook and preserve food, make clothes, etc.
Nowadays we have WalMart.
I was a single mom once and I hated it! I'm no longer a single mom and choose to live with a wonderful man, husband, father. More women need to see that children need a family!
49% of men breathe a sigh of relief.
So they're living without a spouse, are they also living without his money?
Millions of lonely and horny Chinese men wait in the wings...
Liberalism in America has reached a milestone. One of the tenets of Liberalism is to creat as many single female households as possible because single women are more likely to look to the government for assistance than married women especially if they have children. Replace a husband and father with a government check. They have won, all that's left is the celebration.
