College-Educated Women More Likely To Marry

By May 7, 2012

Follow me on:

A new study out shows that for the first time in history, women with one or more college degrees are more likely to be married by age 40 than their lesser-educated counterparts. The study, conducted by a sociology professor at New York University, followed women born between 1958 and 1964 and found that the more educated women marry later in life, however, more of them marry at some point compared to the less educated women. This study reflects a change in expectations of women and their husbands, with many husbands no longer expecting their wives to stay at home. Read more about the study, what other findings were found, and the reasons behind them.
