Black Men, Marriage And White Economic Manipulation (Part 2.)
A new study by Cornell University cites a shortage of “economically attractive” men as one of the reasons behind the national decline in marriage. The study refers to “mismatches in the marriage market” that could potentially lead to unmarried men remaining unmarried.
With U.S. marriage rates at a 150-year low, researchers compared the incomes of unmarried men with married men of a similar demographic. The study, published in the Journal of Marriage and Family, found the group of unmarried men earned less than 58% of their married counterparts.
