all the single ladies

I came across an interesting article from Atlantic Monthly that I wanted to share with you...

Recent years have seen an explosion of male joblessness and a steep decline in men’s life prospects that have disrupted the “romantic market” in ways that narrow a marriage-minded woman’s options: increasingly, her choice is between deadbeats (whose numbers are rising) and playboys (whose power is growing). But this strange state of affairs also presents an opportunity: as the economy evolves, it’s time to embrace new ideas about romance and family—and to acknowledge the end of “traditional” marriage as society’s highest ideal.

  2. Well, I read the entire article. It was loooooong. :) I think the fact that she is mostly looking at marriage from a sociological stand point limits the fact that some people obviously don't marry just to make someone or some culture happy. Loads of people marry someone because they love them - flat out - no questions. Whatever connection we people of humanity make within our spirit, when truly felt, cannot be denied. Nor can we calculate as to which person we will love. When it happens, you know. They are the person it hurts to walk away from. Wherever you are in life you should celebrate it. I just don't think you should blame men in general for a lack of marriages because of their economic standing. I think if anything maybe women should hold men accountable for their actions and not generally let people just fly in and out of their lives. It takes two to tango. If you want something more don't settle. If you want a committed relationship go for it completely. If you don't want one, don't worry about small minded people who think you have to live a cookie-cutter lifestyle. Most importantly be true to yourself and value who you are and make that non-negotiable. Personally, I truly value the beautiful connection I feel when being held by a man I love and am looking forward optimistically to the time I am in a loving marriage with my man, for no other reason than I love him and being away from him just feels wrong. Best of luck and love to everyone out there. :)

  4. I agree with the second commenter. Just because "traditional" marriage is ending doesn't mean romance and love have to. All these things are incredibly personal and can't generalized by one article.
