By Neely Steinberg For years, my single friends and I consoled one another after breakups or blow-offs by employing reductive reasoning, repeating a misinformed, yet token girl power refrain: In fact, we’re beginning to surpass men in many areas: We have more master’s and college degrees , better GPAs and single, childless women have higher earnings than their male counterparts in urban areas. By , more than half the primary breadwinners in America will be women. Given this growing ascendancy, one might surmise that men have started to feel emasculated, put off by financially independent, strong women who make their own way because of the fear they’re losing value as men. Some people opine that men are less attracted to a woman who is on an equal or higher level when it comes to matters of the pocketbook or education, and that a successful woman should dumb herself down to get a man.
How Hypergamy Is Destroying The Nuclear Family
More educated online daters are more likely to positively assort. Abstract To identify the factors that influence educational assortment in an online dating setting, we analyse , participant contacts by 41, members of the Australian online dating web site RSVP over a four-month period. Consistent with prior research, we find that more educated online daters are consistently likely to assort positively homogamy meaning that they are more likely to contact potential mates with the same level of education.
However, as the more educated cohort gets older they care less about homogamy while less educated daters become more interested in homogamy which leads to an increase in similarity towards caring for the same educational level. On the other hand, older and more educated online daters are less likely to contact those with lower educational levels compared to their own while women are more likely to contact a potential mate with higher educational levels relative to their own hypergamy.

Sexual attraction is important, but needs to be balanced with other factors. You have to balance making the best choice with making a choice in the time available to you.
Well, it turns out the time limit was not required, because I met my husband and the rest is history, lol. Now, I could have taken longer to really assess which guy I wanted to date, but time was ticking and maybe my husband would have picked another girl if I held back from dating him. Jonadab-the-Rechabite December 7, at When a woman believes she has a considerably higher sexual market value than her husband she is drawn to adulterous thoughts and actions. Oscar Wilde once quipped that it is easy to know what women want, they want the best.
They do want the best they can get, if they think they can do better then the man they married then covenants, vows, and households are all disposable. In the case where a woman stays, she often feels like she is settling and bitterness and contempt for her husband are cultivated. In an unmarried woman, hypergamy can be a cause in the delay of marriage so that the modern woman with her uber-self-esteem can hold out for the best she can get. All the while rejecting good and God fearing men.
Women have had personal freedoms for less than a century. For the bulk of human history, their behavior was significantly controlled or subject to approval through mechanisms of tribe, family, church, law, or stiff cultural precepts. It was correctly assumed that a woman was unable to make moral, ethical, and wise decisions concerning her life and those around her.

Hypergamy – She’s Looking At You
Forms of hypergamy have been practiced throughout history, including in India , imperial China , ancient Greece , the Ottoman Empire , feudal Europe , and the United States. Social learning theorists , however, say women value men with high earning capacity because women’s own ability to earn is constrained by their disadvantaged status in a male-dominated society.
They argue that as societies shift towards becoming more gender-equal, women’s mate selection preferences will shift as well.
Hypergamy is one social habit that skews China’s marriage market. Misogyny is another. Men famously outnumber women in China, thanks largely to sex-selective abortion.
In America it would be from blue collar to white collar. Now, in we must understand that a woman was expected to follow one path: Women had little to no opportunity for a career, nor was she expected nor able to take care of herself. She had very little rights. The husband was expected to provide for her and their children. So smart women were taught to marry rich, or at least marry a man who was a hard worker or who had a career.
I hear derogatory comments about hypergamy on an almost daily basis. Gold diggers is all they are, the whole lot of them. Look, look at this ugly rich man with the beautiful woman.

Are Christian guys not taking dating seriously is one of the newer posts making rounds of the old facebook, which unfortunately includes me. Young Christian men, we have a problem. This never used to be a problem, gents. My father has many memories of giving the cute girl from youth group a ride home on the handlebars of his bicycle, while my grandfather had something of a reputation for dancing with all the eligible young ladies at Christian fundraisers.
But somewhere among books like I Kissed Dating Goodbye, a lack of relationship role models and trying to navigate the minefield that is modern dating, something changed for our generation. A number of problematic attitudes crept into Christian culture. This post has clearly resonated with a lot of people seeing as how often it has been reposted and seeing it on facebook. This list is more just a superficial poking around of the problem.
Christian women white ones mostly have become very useless, because they have this super perfect version of a man that makes them feel good all the time, never saying the wrong thing. Then they pick some worldly asshole, while they reject the real Godly humble men. They end up settling down for some gay ass hipster boy or Justin Bieber or man-bun douche.
The Rational Male
An online commentary, bastion, and ongoing counterstrike against feminism memes, lies, and women firster supporters. Women will often go after what other women want; the goal of getting a man that other women desire is no exception. Regardless of his worth, a man who as a potential harem of sorts has women after him because other women value him. But this is not common at all.

Mating preferences[ edit ] Studies of heterosexual mate selection in dozens of countries around the world have found men and women report prioritizing different traits when it comes to choosing a mate, with men tending to prefer women who are young and attractive and women tending to prefer men who are rich, well-educated, ambitious, and attractive. Some research supports that theory,  including a analysis of a survey of 8, people in 37 countries, which found that the more gender-equal a country, the likelier male and female respondents were to report seeking the same qualities as each other rather than different ones.
