Why Women Marry Late
Where and how does marriage fit in with our end goals?
Why Marry Late, If At All?
Psychologists say that the main reason women are marrying at a later time is because they want independant success. Pressures at work, more interesting lifestyle choices and industrialization play huge roles in convincing women that there is certainly more to life than getting into a marriage. Many women have come to the very rational decision that it’s a worthwhile life choice to delay marriage in order to further explore the world and their careers.
Aside from marrying late, more women are also resigned to either not having children at all, or going it alone when it comes to rearing children, skipping the rites of marriage altogether and raising kids sans a partner. At any one time, around 25% of mothers are single mothers, with some 50% of today’s moms spending some time as the sole custodial parent.
