Why Women Shouldn't Get Married

Why Women Shouldn't Get Married

According to a recent British study, the higher a woman’s IQ the less likely she is to get married. The opposite is true for men.

I think smarter women don’t marry because they know that, if they do, they will have to expend all their energy on the relationship and kids, therefore they wouldn’t be able to focus on their studies and careers.

Smarter women know that marriage often leads to traditional gender roles wherein women are the housekeepers, mothers, and care-takers; so smart women know that if they go this route, then they likely won’t be able to pursue their ambitions.

Single women look younger

I remember an episode of Oprah where she featured women who were in their 50s and 60s and yet looked like they were in their late 30s or early 40s. What did all these women have in common? They were single!

Women are happily unmarried

I read it every now and then and I even see it on all kinds of television shows… single women in their 30s made out to seem like they’re in a desperate bid to find a man to marry and get pregnant from before their eggs dry up and they find themselves rocking in a chair and wondering where it all went wrong.

Of the 34 women over 30 that I spoke to, all of which had pursued higher education, 30 of them faced the fact that they were not wife material, nor did they ever want to be.

Why? Why is that more and more often, we’re meeting women who aren’t interested in the white picket fence, husband, mortgage, and children lifestyle? The women told me why and I’m about to break it down for you.

1- Sexual freedom

This is not to imply that all single women in their 30s sleep with every man that breathes in their direction, but it does allow single women to pick and choose the men they want and the ones they don’t, and walk away with out a hitch if things aren’t going well.

Marriage is a little messier.

Also, some women are content with casual dating and don’t seem interested in picking up dirty socks or stressing about what to make a man for dinner when she gets home from work.
