The left wanted to destroy the family unit. They got it.

Now reap the whirlwind of western demographic collapse!

Or maybe marriage is much more important to women than men, and men always get the short end of the stick when marriage ends? Thus leading to men avoiding marriage in ways they never did before?

Oh, but you're right, its probably totally a continuation of the Liberal Phantom Menace conspiracy that's somehow been in power since Reagan took office.

When feminism rose to prominence in the west divorce numbers soared, but that's probably just a kooky conspiracy theory :)

Recent legal changes that have been pushed by the left h a be made marriage worse for men. No fault divorce and more generous alimony laws are great for married women(in general) but terrible for married men.

Is there any evidence besides anecdotal that supports a bias against men in the court system?

It wasn't entirely the left, it's also an issue caused by greed, and it's usually the right that pushes greedy policies. Both parents have to work to support a family, so there's no time for a family to be a family.

Income has stagnated for the middle class, but it hasn't dropped (slightly risen if you count lower cost of goods).

The main problem is no fault divorce laws combined with a divorce system that favors women most of the time.

This is really neckbeard-y though, it's not really a big deal. Nobody ACTUALLY cares about it. It's kind of like the declining birth rate.

People freak out but this is actually the age of eugenics. I don't know of a single girl who has trouble getting dates or is worried about it, and not many guys are worried about it either. It's the older generation that is upset because things aren't going as planned, but in 10 years robots will replace a lot of jobs, so a declining birth rate is necessary. It's more like evolution.

And actually if you look at Japan they like the declining birth rate -- the problems are just because they have a bunch of retirees that are becoming a drain on their smaller and more efficient economy. But once they die off the rest are expected to get better benefits anyway - more room, etc.

This thread is kind of hilarious though because its a bunch of dudes like "Yeah! We got em! We're desirable! People care about us!" But it's not really true.

I'm not scared of the decline in the population. The problem, at least in Europe, is that the shrinking native population of Europe is being replaced by mostly non western immigrants that don't share the western values and refuse to integrate.

That will lead to major problems in the future and threaten the prosperity and stability of the whole continent.

And before people call me a racist the increased terror threat against Europe and the many terrorist attacks that has already occured or been prevented can't be denied.

Nor can the economic non sustainability of the non western immigrant population be denied. If you still believe in multiculturalism you're in for a very rude awakening in my mind.

This isn't about dating though. Not that you are wrong in what you said, but its irrelevant to the article. The article deals with more of the social implications of marriage.

Tell that to my single 28 year old sister that wanted a family and now can't have kids.

It was never the "left" that wanted this, it was the upper elite who wanted that.

It's right there in the communist manifesto. Read the classics man.
