not that we could get people interested in this, but here are some unequal statistics regarding marriage that disturb few men and rarely raise an eyebrown with women....
Divorced/separated men commit suicide 400% more than women
15% of men are awarded custody of their own children, unchanged since 1994
Annual support payments increase 18% to $40 billion paid by 7.8 million separated parents, 6.6 million are fathers
A marriage strike is the avoidance of marriage, especially by men. The term is often used by masculists to suggest that many men avoid (or should avoid) marriage out of a conscious fear of financial devastation in the event of divorce.
Advocates of the marriage strike hold that through the combination of laws permitting no-fault divorce and prevailing conditions in divorce courts that are substantially more likely to favor the wife over the husband in disputes over child custody, visitation rights, ownership of the family residence and other shared property, child support, and alimony, it is possible for a woman to divorce her husband unilaterally while simultaneously depriving him of the right to see his offspring and financially crippling him.
They argue that since the divorce rate is high, and since women are more likely than men to seek no-fault divorce, scenarios like the above are a likely outcome of marriage, and that many men, fearing such an outcome, choose not to marry.
There have been numerous studies showing that a range of 60 to 93 percent of no-fault divorces in the United States were initiated by women, usually against a man who works a blue-collar job, for grounds cited as "emotional unfulfillment."
so who benefits the most when they dont marry? and who is holding off on marriage more? Men or women? not that anyone cares to discuss such an important topic
