Columnist Mark Regnerus from the Washington Post says that women nowadays don't marry young because it's uncool, and because it's focus on studies first. This means that women have to marry while they're fresh and young, otherwise their value drops with their youth, and they end up losers in life.
Regnerus implies that women don't want to get married young due to "peer pressure to avoid giving serious thought to mariage until they're at least in their late 20s." He says that it seems like women are afraid that it'll destroy their social lives and freedom, and women want to focus on studies or careers first before thinking about marriage (but end up losers anyway because they didn't get married sooner). In fact, he thinks that early marriage is great for girls, and in fact, the MEN can't handle it. Regnerus writes;
According to data from the government's National Survey of Family
Growth, women who marry at 18 have a better shot at making a marriage
work than men who marry at 21. There is wisdom in having an age gap
between spouses. For women, age is (unfortunately) a debit, decreasing
fertility. For men, age can be a credit, increasing their access to
resources and improving their maturity, thus making them more
attractive to women. We may all dislike this scenario, but we can't
will it away.
The point: Marry young, while you're fertile, otherwise nobody will want you. Oh, and by the way, it's also totally okay for 40-year-old men to get married for the first time. In fact, the older the better, because you have more "money and maturation". As the male fertility lives on, this is not a problem for them. Women however, better watch out other wise they have to "beg, pray, borrow and pay to reclaim it in their 30s and 40s".
This is not just an economic problem. It's also a biological and
emotional one. I realize that it's not cool to say that, but my job is
to map trends, not to affirm them. Marriage will be there for men when
they're ready. And most do get there. Eventually. But according to
social psychologists Roy Baumeister and Kathleen Vohs, women's "market
value" declines steadily as they age, while men's tends to rise in step
with their growing resources (that is, money and maturation). Countless
studies — and endless anecdotes — reinforce their conclusion.
So, lets say women were to listen to Regnerus' "advice", we are free from pressures to wait and date around. Instead, it's replaced with the pressure of desperately finding a lifelong mate before we start shrivelling up with age at 30, otherwise nobody will want them and they will die alone, unsuccessful in career and life (because Regnerus says that marrying young means that you will be more successful in your career).
Imagine, Regnerus the supposed sociologist, reverting back to the olden days where women were pressured to marry young as they lose "market value" when they get old. For men, it's totally okay to grow old and marry whenever they like. Women however, he thinks, are solely the tool to reproduce and spread the male seeds. Already in these modern times, women are silently oppressed but at least, building their way up to more freedom and power in the world. What about the LOVE factor, sacrifice, trust, respect and whether a couple can be entirely sure they can live together? These decisions should be made by the people themselves, not what aging-woman-hating Regnerus thinks.
On the off chance that given the decision, we're almost certain nobody would pick to be in a long distance relationship. Without a doubt, non-appearance influences the heart to become fonder, yet we're calling bullsh*t on that one: being separated from the individual you adore is hard. What's more, to influence it to work - and keep it a sound, useful and sexual, you need to invest effort, responsibility and well, get somewhat innovative. Read more
Life is a precious gift, but it’s all too easy to take it for granted. We assume we’re going to wake up each morning, and may have grievances about our work, or our neighbors, or the weather. We worry about things that we have no control over. All of these things may mean we’re not taking opportunities that are presented to us and we’re not living life to the full because we’re always looking for the negative. Read more
