Marriage ‘gap’ narrows among white women regardless of education, report finds…….

You don’t have to tell about this…..

I have son’s….

They would never have gotten married without money….

As a matter of fact……

They aren’t in ANY hurry to get married……They ALL have college….

YOUNG people very seldom get married these days is correct….

 

 

A new report shows that the once-large marriage gap for white women turned around starting with a cohort of women who were born in the early 1970s. Those women, now ages 35 to 39, have been as likely to marry as those who did not graduate from college, according to the report by the Pew Research Center.

For both groups, an analysis of 2008 figures shows 84 percent had married at some point before age 40.

“It’s a historic reversal,” said Richard Fry, author of the study. “There was a time in the early 20th century when there was a huge marriage gap.”The finding, based on data from the Census Bureau, comes as part of a larger analysis that shows a closing of the college marriage gap overall. Now, across the population, the typical age of marriage is 28 for both those who complete higher education and those who don’t take that path or in some cases don’t finish.

But looking deeper at the trend, researchers found that much of this shift has been driven by a declining likelihood of marriage among men and women without college degrees.

“Young adults today believe you shouldn’t get married until you’re economically secure,” says Andrew Cherlin, a Johns Hopkins sociologist who studies marriage. “Until at least the young man has a steady job, the young adults won’t marry. Marriage becomes something you do after you get a decent job, not before.”

I  always like Sandra Bullock….

She always seems to have a vulurabity come thru……

I never understood why she hooked up Jesse James who never seemed ‘right’ to me….

Ok, I wasn’t going to do anymore Tiger Woods stories…but I have to do todays……it seem’s his wife isn’t leaving…..

The Story today in the New York Daily News is that Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods wife, is not leaving him……

Yea, you heard it right, NOT LEAVING HIM…..

I said a week ago when I promised not to post on the story that this whole thing isn’t really anybodies business but those two…..

If these two adults have sat down and worked out,ah, started to work out the kinks in their relationship then I applaud them….Too many people these days just walk away from the rough spots in their marriages….I know I’ve been married a long time…it great, but not easy…..

The good thing is that Nordegren, Mrs. Woods, has indicated that she knew about his running around from the jump…which is crazy, but at least she’s not completely dumb….another high octane marriage comes to mind ….Mr. and Mrs. William Jefferson Clinton….if your read their history ….you know that when Hillary first started going out with him she was warned….he’s got the ‘thing’…women love him…..she understood…it was the reason she went out with him….and the reason she fell in love with him,  and the reason she  married him…and she will be standing beside him ( after all the s*#t  he dragged her thru ) when their daughter gets married next year…..

Norgreen comes from a broken home….and it probably weighs heavy on her heart to create one for her two young children, even though her husband  started his running around from the beginning of their relationship…..(and his mother and her mother apparently live part-time with the couple)

The brother need to deal with the’ why’  in him….Because this is not about sex….

If the reports are true then, her forgiveness should not given lightly….He should be willing to devote himself to his family…. Numerous fly by night affairs…..And it will be hard for him…..

And listen Tiger…have a news conference ( my wife says, forget Oprah) have your news conference WITH your wife….

Let her vent…keep your head down and apologize to her, your family, and in general for screwing up a good thing……

Then get on with life and go out and play the best Golf you ever have played, and feel good about yourself……

And Mrs. Woods….I think you need to do more traveling with husband….

Old Ronald Reagan saying…..‘Trust…but verify”…..
