Hypergamy and college degrees

As I warned nearly 10 years ago, the combination of hypergamy and the male-female imbalance at the universities is already severely reducing the ability of women to marry up.


Then consider that a portion of those men will prefer to marry women who are not college graduates. After all, most men are relatively indifferent to the educational attainment of their wives. Even if only 30 percent of men marry non-college graduates, that means a woman who graduates from college has less than a 50 percent chance of marrying up. Which, in most cases, means she will never marry.

Overeducating women is not merely dyscivic, it is dysgenic.

I'd agree with you if universities taught anything beyond Marxism. They're not being educated but indoctrinated.

Would these numbers portend a larger supply of hot, good looking, and younger women for the college guys to select from? The future upper classes are obviously going to be much better looking than at present. The meaning of life is, after all, as the old cowboy said: "younger women, older wiskey, faster horses, and more money".

The growing marxist tyranny along with the feminist invasions of STEM are going to further reduce the number of men in universities.

A woman with a useless degree who marries a plumber is stepping up, but she doesn't know it because she thinks just having the piece of paper grants her some superiority.

African American Studies
Art History
Classics
Dance
Ecology
English
Studio Art
Theatre

None of these are worth a plumber's skills.

BTW, I noticed that the University of Georgia offers 15 different art degrees, including: "Art - Area of Emphasis in Jewelry and Metalwork - B.F.A". I have to wonder if the influx of women has caused them to create more women friendly majors.

Some of us with more wisdom to hand than SSMV consider college an instant disqualifier.

Also consider some of the men will major in useless shit, and wind up in low status /income jobs. So few quality men waaah!

This is the sick side of H1B visas. White women preferring to marry foreigners who have a degree even if its a worthless one over blue collar workers who even make more. I'm starting to see this proof of white women being nothing more than whores in Seattle. Its just an extension of the war on whites.

Matt said...

Does it count as marrying up, if the degrees are worthless and the graduates have no jobs?

Fred said...

The Govt. figured out there are only two genders. Another win for Trump.

Degrees are like Mercedes and BMWs. They're largely about prestige. So, even if a woman has a useless degree, it's still a degree, and her cucked dad gets to crow about it while she feels "empowered." Meanwhile, there's a boy who didn't get into the same college because she was given preference.

In the societal scheme of things, it doesn't matter much if he's doing worthwhile work anyway, and she's an HR director. Metaphorically, he's in used Gremlin (look it up), while she's in a Lexus. This is the damage that pushing women into college did. It's a matter of perception. Yes, all of us here know it's perception and not reality, but this isn't the case for the female college grad and her folks who spend endless bucks to get her diploma. They need to feel their money and time was well spent, so the cling to the prestige factor.

The problems come about 15 years later when mom and dad realize no grandkids are on the way unless they come from a test tube. With sperm donated from an Ivy Leaguer, of course.

Both Greece and Roman civilizations had issues with declining birth rates of the native populations once their civilizations became preeminent. Maybe our reasons are different, but aren't we just following a well-established trend?

Tom Terrific said...

Dysgenic? Perhaps. Or actually eugenic. Consider if 50% of these women don't marry they won't be sending their Stupid Gene into the next generation. In addition, each one will serve as a social warning sign to all the little girls out there watching to see what happens to "Smart Girls".

The consequences in the meantime could still be detrimental to western society.

Or, even more importantly, their Feminist Gene (assuming that these are not one and the same thing).

I agree with this. So much damage being done in the quest for something of so little value.

I guess the notion of a girl attending college to get the MRS degree is long past.

dc.sunsets said...

When the credit bubble bursts for good, girls attending college for useless degrees will too be a thing of the past.

This is an Amazing knowledgeable article published by you. So far i am following you since a year ago and i wanted to contribute for you. You can check our old articles Game hacker apps 2017

Over time, I think the pendulum will swing. Women will become increasingly aware that a man with no degree and no debt is a better provider than one with a useless degree and a six-figure student loan, and therefore increasingly willing to marry the former. And girls coming out of high school will be less interested in going to college as they see that doing so isn't going to get them that MRS degree.

Women do often hit the epiphany phase when they realize a plumber is a better provider then a art history major, but by then they are used up carousel riders.

Mr.MantraMan said...

The useful ones get a degree, hate the stupid job they end up with then go back to nursing school.

This is nice information to know but if you drop back into the usual conservative outrage it is all for naught, our feminized society requires GAME. We are essentially immersed in a society with the ethics of a 17 year old white girl and that requires and Alpha's firm hand not a Gamma's secret kingship of abstract intellectual BS.

@Rex Little - You can wait around as long as you like for the return of that pendulum, but even if "women will become increasingly aware" of anything, they won't alter their behavior, they'll just whine and scream that "SOMEBODY (like Daddy Gov) MUST DO SOMETHING!". Something like, say, a penaltax on all men to fund their cock-seeking overseas adventures.

"A recent study by the American Sociological Association found that women initiate two thirds of all divorces, a staggering 69% to be exact. An even higher rate of 90% of all divorces are initiated by college-educated women."

So even those that do manage to marry don't stick around. The future is indeed grim.

I wasn't clear on this, but I didn't mean that I expect women to change their behavior. What I expect is that young women facing these choices (whether to go to college, who to marry) for the first time will make different choices than their older sisters did as the incentives change.

This is because family courts favor women. Doesn't say much about who's responsible for ruining the marriage.

The longer she attains her degree has a bit to do with it as well. She's off the market until she decided she is done playing around. It doesn't help that she takes her degree less seriously than a man. Many are quite willing to turn degrees into useless pieces of paper when the right guy shows up.
