Unmarriageable

This week there’ve been a rash of articles all outlining the latest statistics about marriage in this decade. US marriage rates are at a 150 year low and, if you believe the all-female article writers, it’s of course men’s fault for failing to be marriageable. These articles are referencing a study published last week titled Mismatches in the Marriage Market and this study reveals large deficits in the supply of potential male spouses. One implication is that the unmarried may remain unmarried or marry less well‐suited partners.

That’s right gentlemen, you’re unmarriageable and the ladies want you to shape up. If you want to experience marital bliss – despite all the inherent personal dangers for men in today’s “marriage economy” – you must make yourself “economically attractive“:

“Most American women hope to marry, but current shortages of marriageable men — men with a stable job and a good income — make this increasingly difficult,” says lead author Daniel Lichter in a press release.

The stats don’t lie and they are pretty bleak. More women are enrolled in college than ever before and more are expected to enter through the middle of the coming decade. Now, a degree doesn’t guarantee a woman a job, and it says nothing about the majors and job sectors women prefer, but a college education does reinforce the idea that women are entitled to marry an economically attractive man who himself has an education and enough aspiration to make something of himself to become marriageable.

That’s some real shit right there and we’re not even half way through this post. We’ve gotten to the point where the truth of the past five decades is apparent; gendered politics has actively, openly, disadvantaged men in terms of education. Whether this hobbling of men is via educational dispensations (Title IX) or social conventions (divorce, child support, Duluth model feminism) the outcome is now unignorable.

In most western societies today there is a separate standard of justice that applies to women. Women are receive far fewer consequences and are sentenced much more leniently than men for committing the exact same crimes. These are easily proven statistics, but even when they are brought to light the gynocentric social order doubles down and justifies them because, women.

My intent here today isn’t to depress anyone. Neither am I drawing attention to this because I’ve made a new turn to the Men Rights Movement. No doubt there’ve been many article already written about the female hubris inherent in these revelations – revelations the Red Pill community has been pointing out for almost two decades now.

The manifestations of about 50 years of social changes produced by a feminine-primary social order are unignorable. Even mainstream media sources are finally seeing these stories as the red meat du jour for the masses now. A lot of the Red Pill principles and I and many other men in the Manosphere have been drawing attention to about intersexual dynamics are now coming to light in popular consciousness.

Aww Quit Complaining

Last year I delivered the State of the Manosphere Address, and in that talk I outlined the rise of what I saw as a new Gender War (or gender cold war). Naturally I was called a reactionary, and have been since described as “overly negative” even by the organization that asked me to deliver that speech. But yet, everything in that outline has come to pass in less than a year. Of course, the easy dismissal is to blame this on election year propaganda. More than one mainstream talkshow conservative has jumped on the Toxic Masculinity bandwagon, pointing out how the Left and mainstream feminism are one and the same.

However, there have been many swings of the political pendulum in the past 50 years. Conservative zeitgeists have contributed to the same feminine-primary social order that’s resulted in men being unmarriageable today. It’s just been good politics to appeal to the Feminine Imperative no matter what side of the political aisle you happen to sit on.

But I’m a man. I’m not supposed to be overly concerned with issues like this. As long as I’m measuring up to my Burden of Performance any marginal raising-of-awareness to truths like the ones above make me seem like I’m complaining. And that’s something men are never allowed to do. It’s a very effective way of silencing men. Get them to feel like they ought to silence themselves. Real men don’t complain.

Meanwhile, it’s Broke Men who are hurting American Women’s Marriage Prospects. My good friend Dalrock once wrote a series of post around the idea that feminism would be so much more successful if men would only cooperate with it. When women are unable to optimally complete their mating (and life’s) strategies it’s men’s fault for being uncooperative. It’s men’s fault when women’s life plans don’t come together as Sheryl Sandberg told them it would. It’s men’s fault when they won’t play the approved role they should when women hit their Epiphany Phase and their sexual priorities shift.

Confirming the Red Pill

If you needed a better illustration of the Solipsism inherent in women’s nature you’ll be hard pressed to find it on a bigger scale than the dozens of stories bemoaning the lack of marriageable men today. Furthermore, it goes to prove another Red Pill truth: as a man, women don’t care who you are as much as what you are. I’ve taken a lot of heat over the years over my assessment of how men and women have different concepts of love. Men love idealistically. I rarely get any pushback on that assertion, but when I layout how women’s Hypergamous natures predispose them to a concept of love based on opportunism men and women lose their minds.

Yet, here we are. Women enthusiastically proving my point for me without me having to do any heavy lifting. As women become more comfortable in Open Hypergamy we see this embracing of their nature proudly flaunted. Naturally women will double down on this.

Of course women don’t wanna marry no bum!

And then the Trad-Cons join the chorus,

It’s men’s fault they aren’t measuring up to being the men all women are entitled to.

There are dozens of studies that correlate divorce with women earning more than their husbands. In fact, women are reluctant to admit that they out-earn their husbands. Throughout the history of this blog I’ve shown the evolved reasons for this dynamic, but what the articles all dance around is women’s natural evolutionary desire for men who exceed them in all aspects. But because we’ve opted to believe in, and standardized on, social constructionism we lay all of that on “societal expectations” of men and women. In a future essay I’ll be defining how the cope of humans being ‘above it all’ in their evolved instincts is the root source of many deliberate misgivings about intersexual conflict. For now, understand that blaming any inconvenient intersexual truth on a nebulous “society” is the go-to rationale for a feminine-primary social order.

If only men would evolve and rise above what society foists on them we women would be happy” versus “Men need to accommodate women’s success by making themselves more ‘economically desirable’

And “Oh, but love is important too, *wink wink*.”

“Many young men today have little to bring to the marriage bargain, especially as young women’s educational levels on average now exceed their male suitors’,” Lichter says.

It’s interesting that some articles advocate for marriage as a “stabilizing force” in society, all while never (maybe deliberately) seeing the economic risks of disaster that the divorce industry incentivizes in women. There’s nothing stabilizing about promoting marriage between men you’ve deemed “economically unattractive” and women who feel entitled to a man who exceeds their Hypergamous expectations. There’s nothing ‘stabilizing’ about the incidence of divorce between couples where the man is unable to out-earn his wife.

Naturally we want to make this a ‘his‘ problem. He can’t get over the fact that she makes more, has more education, etc. He’s insecure in his masculinity and must feel threatened by Her success. Or it could be the fact that on an instinctual level he understands that it’s an evolved imperative for a man to provide for and protect his family. This is the fallacy of Rise Above It. No matter how enlightened and progressive we’d like to think we are nature drags us back to reality. It’s not a socially constructed problem – if it were it would be easily solved – it’s a human nature problem. Women reveal the true Hypergamous nature in articles like these. They want a man who they can naturally look up to, respect and admire. That’s the natural truth coming out, but they source the problem in a socially constructed fantasy that it’s men’s insecurities that are holding them back from completing women’s mating/life strategies.

Women don’t need to get married anymore. The average age of first marriage is hovering around 27 years old for most couples. Studies also show that more than half of young people in America don’t have a romantic partner. We’ve all but eliminated the Beta Bucks side of the Hypergamous equation for women. Open Hypergamy (and Open Cuckoldry) are the logical outcomes of this provisioning insurance we’ve made ubiquitous for women over the last 40 years. Yet, women still want to be married to a man who outclasses them in all areas of life. They feel they deserve that guy. Their hindbrain knows they do, but the nebulous society still encourages women to believe there’s never been a better time for them to be single. This is the message women are being fed as they complain about men’s not living up to being their “equals”.

Nearly half of working-age women will be single in 2030, a new Morgan Stanley study predicts, a demographic that will drive increased sales for companies in the athletic wear, cosmetics and clothing sectors.

The investment bank’s “Rise of the SHEconomy” report says 45 percent of working-age women between 25 and 44 in the U.S. will be single women in 10 years, Forbes reported.

Single women will drive the economy in the next decade and savvy businesses are already planning on exploiting this demographic. But yet it’s men’s fault for not being marriageable and/or avoiding marriage altogether?

Too many people think I’m down on marriage. Apparently 23 years of what most guys would consider an ideal marriage isn’t enough to convince them. Honestly, as an institution – socially enforced monogamy – I think marriage, based on evolved gender difference complementarity has been the foundation of the success of western culture. But maybe we’re at a turning point in human history where traditional marriage is left behind, replaced by feminine-primary polygamy with all its inherently violent risks. It seems we’re heading in a direction where we convince Beta men it’s in their reproductive interests to abandon their evolved need to be invested in their own paternity – and that attending to and raising the children of men that women selected before them makes them ‘better men’.

There’s a lot more to the anti-marriage reasoning than just the “losing half my stuff” arguments.

It really sucks for a guy like me who’s managed to make a Red Pill aware marriage work in spite of all this. Guys get confused. How can I be anti-marriage and still married? But it’s just that dichotomy that tells the you about the nature of what marriage has become for men today. The way we do marriage today has the potential to be the most damaging decision a man can make in his life. It may even end his life. But despite all that I still believe men and women are better together than we are apart. We still evolved to be complements to the other.

It’s the coming together and living together, and all the downside risks to men today that I have no solution for at the moment. Maybe it’s going to take a war or a meteor striking the earth to set gender parity back in balance, but at the moment there’s only a future of sexual segregation to look forward to.

Excellent article and great read. I was never that attractive of a male and was always overweight (most certainly and quite definitely a hereditary abnormal defective genetic abnormality of inferiority). Natural selection and lack of financial resources working in a limited income earning occupation assured my inability to be an attractive candidate or marriageable male for mating and procreation. Some of us are selected over in the gene pool regarding marriage and procreative means. I still love sociology and I’ve never thought of committing suicide, so I’ve got that going for me!

Ironically, I am reading this post at a wedding, the bride just walked down the aisle! Most of the people here are married already, some young women in the back are holding babies. In a few years almost all of them, including the groom’s young friends, will be married. Orthodox Jews have a marriage rate around 90% by age 30, the age when most Americans are just starting to think about getting married. At the rate things are going in America, most of the people getting married and having children within a normal family unit will be traditional and religious.… Read more »

You know how the tradcons tell us that married people are richer, so we should get married if we want to be rich? Well, they are liars who got it exactly ass backwards. Rich people are much more likely to get married in the first place, so, it was being rich that made them married, not getting married that made them rich.

I’ve seen numerous articles/posts about that study, but NONE has actually questioned what the study means by “Many young men today have little to bring to the marriage bargain”.

What is The Marriage Bargain? It can’t mean financial provision for sexual access, can it? Each brings “sexual access”, so that’s a wash. And given that “home duties” and being a supportive spouse (whatever that means) is as equal a marital contribution as setting up a multi-billion, global distribution network, that’s a wash too.

I’m sure everyone here knows what it really means. I’m just really bemused that no-one (anywhere) is saying it.

And if over half of our ‘normal’ women aren’t having kids due to feminist bs, then that’s not really some beneficial culling. That’s a disintegration of our culture. The oncoming legion of bastards is where this is heading.

At least they are (perhaps unwittingly) acknowledging the contractual nature of modern marriage. I’ve been considering the idea that maybe all marriages and all sexual relationships are transactions in nature, the only difference is the currency. I mean if a woman has sex with the hot bad boy, she’s getting validation for her ego, so isn’t she trading sexual access for that validation? It just doesn’t cost the man as much. How is that any different than women trading sexual access for marriage and provisioning? You might say it’s because of genuine desire, but is it really? I have found… Read more »

IN case anyone is wondering, I meant these 40 to 50 something womez will be voting to keep current POTUS, not for the Cuckservative party that had become the Republicans party in the states. Rollo is correct, and if you go over to VoxDay, he says the same thing – not a lot of difference today between the liberal Dems and a lot of “so-called” self identified conservatives…..they all seem to believe in the lie that is feminism. No wonder so many believe in a global cabal controlling things, as it would explain how two supposedly different political ideologies could… Read more »

I was gonna edit in one other remark but the edit timer ran out. Marriage is purely beneficial for females. All outcomes including complete failure give her what she wants – resources. Complete failure can and often does give her more resources so she deliberately arranges it. Things like morality or thoughts of the father and family are not considerations here. It is all her her her. All of those benefits come at the expense of men. Marriage as a “stabilizing force” is no exception. In short slaves are stable for society and won’t burn the village so they can… Read more »

@ Morpheus If all you’re bringing to the table is money, I would agree with you, but if a guy has any two of the three, then that I believe changes everything. Of course if he has all three, he pretty much can have any that are available. I’ve never had a lot of money, but my wife has always thought I looked hot, even now at 63. Enough so that we have seven children together, and have been married for 43 years. Even if you’re right, that doesn’t change the point that all sex is a transaction whether it… Read more »

@ Novaseeker- You are partially correct; many so called “men” under 40 suck nowadays. I see it everyday at my office, where the women look, act and sound tougher than most to the men there….heck, even my Millennial supervisor companies that his wife is a strong demanding type that will not listen to him. Go figure, when he looks I used when I was 12 years old….narrow, weak shoulders, no chest definition, skinny stick legs. However, you are oversimplifying things a bit.

@DR Smite They’re not different and are two sides of the same uniparty coin. Imagine a boat with its anchor down. It will still move where it wants but slower and with the potential for damaging the craft. The left is the boat, the right is the anchor. They don’t actually conserve anything except money. That is the American political system. Discussing the political leaning of females is pointless though as they are all in the “I want resources” party. For unmarried females this means the left, so they get resources from other men. For married ones this means the… Read more »

Yesterday by happenstance I came across the site setting out the awards winners and nominees in the Mystery writers association. The awards go back to the 90s.

The Hugo award goes back to the 1950’s. Search on the last 4 years of nominees.

Opus, you’ve heard of women’s ingroup preference, and I’m sure you’ve seen it in action (the “queen bee” office manager who has only female and homosexual male underlings), why are you surprised it also affects literature?

Men and boys hardly read at all now, because reasons.

Be zero fucks given whether or not people show you respect or like you. If men disrespect you, return it 100 fold. If people show you that they like you, be careful about returning the favor lest you get trapped.

This is true for both men and women, except you return expressions of dislke when women disrespect you.

doesn’t change the point that all sex is a transaction whether it be with the hot guy, because she wants his genes, or the beta guy because she wants his money. Yes, but the quality/type of the sex is vastly different as between those two “transactions”. In the first case, it’s a deeply visceral/evolutionary drive — it’s raw lust and desire, and it leads to lust/desire sex. That is what the desire for male genes manifests itself as — female lust. This is because what she desires is evolutionary/physical/sexual — it is intrinsic to the sex act itself (gene transmission),… Read more »

Dear Rollo, I’m a research scientist at MIT and this week Prof. Richard Stallman resigned under pressure due to an email he sent on an email group. Most details can be found online, and the facts speak for themselves (even in opinionated articles). The Village came together in hundreds and called for his removal. The key phrases were “problematic viewpoint” and “how dare he question the story of a survivor”. It was a witch-hunt. Reason and free speech are no match for the Village. It seems every article and video is bashing him. Any of us could be next. Loading...

In fact, if you ask them, the DON’T WANT ANYTHING to do with that. That’s all tomorrow-land stuff. These girls are freaking busy!!!

You’re a good guy and all, but sometimes you sound a bit daft when you try to hard to defend men under all circumstances all the time, particularly the young men. That’s a huge part of the problem when people want to excuse shitty behaviors, and it’s why it’s harder to pry grown motherfuckers away from the apron strings of the super Nanny state.

No. Grown motherfuckers are being raised to be dependant on the state, not knowing any different, and other grown ass motherfuckers are enjoying the puerile glee of lording their progress over the rest of the mouth-breathing chaff.

Someone has to play daddy.

If you want to relieve the state of doing that, someone has to suffer the cringy task of retraining proper masculinity that is free of gynocentric editing.

Due a circumstances (criminal history, etc.) I make very little money. I wouldn’t be considered “marriageable” yet I find myself seeking a wife. Just about any girl I meet will make much more money than me. Leveraging game and looks I could probably find an attractive partner but I wouldn’t feel like a man being dependent on a woman’s income.

There is much, much more at play than simply “men aren’t ‘marriageable’ because they don’t earn as much as women”. The study (and “society” at large) assumes that men’s only potential contribution as a marriage partner is economic. What about all the screeching about men needing to pick up more of the “mental load”, do more around the house (heh, “chore-play”), be more involved in childrearing, and be more “emotionally available”? Apparently, none of those really matter. The mask has slipped, and it essentially boils down to a man being a walking ATM. The opposite side of the coin is… Read more »

Accountability is unpopular.

The cry of ” accept me as I am!!!! ” is more suited to the LGBTQXYZ set. Men that make no effort aren’t suppose d to reap benefits. A man has to build himself from the first steps he takes onward. Even babies go from crawling to walking to running. Progression is natural.

Everything of worth costs something. Worthlessness is free of charge and the easiest thing to do. No points for that, no matter how many excuses one can stack up in defense of it.
