About four-in-ten (39%) young women say that having a successful marriage is “one of the most important things” in their life, compared with about three-in-ten (29%) young men who say so. But in other realms of life asked about in the 2010 Pew Research survey, most people do not think either married or single people have an easier time of it.
In fact, about half or more think there is no difference between being married or single in the ease of having a fulfilling sex life, being financially secure, finding happiness, getting ahead in a career or having social status.
Among divorced adults, only 29% say they would like to marry again, with women more likely than men to say they do not want another trip down the aisle.
Among widowed men and women, only 8% want to wed again.
In 2011, the median age at first marriage was at a record high—about 29 for men and about 27 for women, according to census data.
Being a good parent was seen as “one of the most important things” by a larger share of adults (53%).
Men and women overall do not answer differently in rating the priority of a successful marriage to them, but there are differences among young adults, ages 18 to 34. According to the public, it is easier for a married person than a single person to raise a family (77% say so).
Elizabeth J Catlos My primary research focus is [bold]geochemistry[/bold], and how the fundamentals of chemistry (mineral reactions, radiogenic and stable isotopes, major and trace elements) can be and are used to understand what the Earth was like in the past.
In this, I have interests that span a broad range of range of plate boundary processes and laboratory approaches.
