In other words economically well off women won't marry someone less economically successful than themselves. Men will, women won't.

For the majority of women, that's what I've seen too.

The smart ones will, because they aren't stuck in the middle ages.

If women were stuck in the middle ages, they wouldn't be going to school at all. Read the article. It's the "smart" ones that are being examined.

I'm personal friends with a couple of female doctors. They've both told me they won't marry someone that makes under $100,000/yr because they're "afraid it'll be awkward."

In terms of education, neither women or men are likely to marry outside of their educational class. As for men being will to marry less successful women, in a situation like at present that doesn't really happen because with more single women available the men can play the field.

Men often marry women less educated than them. It does not matter

Field? What is this field of which you speak?

Wait, so you're saying these women can't find husbands and they have enormous schlongs? I must have skipped something in the article.

Thanks vice, it's nice to know men's low college rates are not a problem until it effect women.

When men were succeeding in college, it was built in discrimination. Now that women are succeeding, it's due to their more mature character and better aptitude. Lol. We have been building school to favor women for 30 years. This is what happens when you do that.

"And in other news: People everywhere forced to choose either soup or salad. All dichotomies declared sexist, somehow."

She was in her late 30s

She really wants to have kids, get married

Okay...

"she's amazing in every way."

Except for her shrivelled-up ovaries.

This illustrates the fact that, for many women, reality is a social construction. It is not important what is actually true, what matters is what beliefs are socially approved.

In this case, a woman nearing 40 is not going to be amazingly attractive. She is also 10 years from menopause, a time when a significant fraction of women a) lose interest in sex completely, b) undergo adverse personality changes.

This idea that women say they believe what is socially acceptable - it is well attested in psychological studies. Women were twice as likely to go along with a manifestly false belief than men were, when subjected to social pressure to do so.

I will say this article is not very scientific

It's vice. I don't think they are concerned with mundane things like "Science".

Marriage isn't really a good option these days. More like purposefully getting into a trap.
