Men marry for logical reasons, they believe they need to secure a woman to keep the benefits of a relationship going (or she will leave). Women tend to marry for emotional reasons, excepting gold-diggers.
Given this, why are more men choosing to marry less?
It is illogical to do so.
Why? Ant and grasshopper.
If a man wanders off and makes a success of himself (attractive prospect in the marriage market) in the same time that a woman is wasting her youth (and yeah, that’s important for fertility reasons), there is no logical reason to buy in, especially when they can get a woman younger than themselves and less entitled (age does that).
What is the solution?
Women aren’t going to like it….
Become better wives.
Like a job, you need to demonstrate the skills before you get that promotion. It requires effort. Hey, just like a marriage!
