More educated women more likely to be married
There’s false information floating out there about women and marriage. At “game” blogs, there’s this idea that smart women will just divorce men and take their money. And at feminist blogs, there’s this idea that smart women can’t get married at all because men hate smart women.
So I provide you with real data from the 2012 American Community Survey from the U.S. Census. This report is run for white non-Hispanic women ages 25-50.
In this demographic group, we see that the more education a woman has, the more likely she is to be married and the less likely she is to be divorced. Charles Murray would not be surprised by this chart. He wrote a whole book about how the new upper class still lives according to traditional values and it’s the lower classes who are having social problems like not being able to get married and stay married.
So if you are a man looking for a stable marriage where your wife is least likely to divorce you, try to marry the most educated woman you can find. And because years of education is only a very rough approximation for social class and IQ, you can surely improve your chances that much more by seeking women with degrees from the best universities.
