Quoting Quiverfull: Unmarried Stay Poor?

Quoting Quiverfull: Unmarried Stay Poor? October 5, 2014

prenuptial-agreements-620x412Ladies Against Feminism has republished a piece from the Mercador by Nicole King called Marriage linked to income increase. If I’m reading this right it sounds like LAF and the original author are saying that a) get married to the first living breathing man with prospects or education to avoid poverty and b) dooming non-white women to poverty by the statistics used by the Pew Research Center and the New York Times. Classy, LAF, so so classy..

The News Story – Marriage rates keep falling, as money concerns rise

Pew Research Center Report released Wednesday reveals that a record 20% of adults over the age of 25 have never married, and that number is expected to rise to 25% by 2030.

The New York Times reports that at least a part of this marriage decline is due to “the country’s deepening socioeconomic divide.”  Women, it seems, still prefer to marry men who are stably employed.  “Educated, high-income people are still marrying at high rates and tending to stay married,” reports the Times.  “Remaining unmarried is more common among the less educated, blacks and the young . . .” The report also reveals that lack of financial preparedness is one of the main reasons that young adults are foregoing marriage.

But if current research is correct, these couples may be sacrificing the very economic stability they seek in choosing to stay single.
