Why Do We Have More Unmarried Women These Days Than In The Past?

Why do we have more unmarried women these days? Why is it that women no longer get married as easy as it used to be in the past?

We have more unmarried women these days than before.

Can women tell us why this trend is increasing? It is a miracle if a women gets a husband?

Bible already predicted it...it will eventually become worse sef

I don't believe in women being independent and satisfied because all of them{unmarried and successful women} envy those that are married.they all wish they had a man to call their husband.

the population of men is rapidly reducing and time will come when women will start begging men openly to marry them..it's all written!

so what is the solution? what do ladies think about polygamy?

if a man is ok and he is capable of managing two or more wives , why cant he marry more as was done by our grand parent, i think this is one of the way out, half a bread is better than none!

submissiveness is the major factor behind women not getting married.

it's a different world and i don't know what tomorrow will be with the alarming rate of unmarried women and baby mommas.

women would never admit that they have their faults and are major contributor to failed marriages and relationships

because there are very few responsible men out there that are ready for marriage. and more women are becoming practical in their everyday lives , independent financially, spiritually and otherwise. More women are no longer eager to play along with the unnecessary antics of most men.

My good friend is wedding tomorrow and the bride is not his dream girl, but the will of God.

Most of the unmarried women have been disappointed and betrayed by unfaithful and unreliable boyfriends.

No real woman wants to remain single for life.

Both parties will be happy to get married. I was over the moon when my wife agreed to marry me and I have had no regrets about it especially seeing that there seems to be an abundance of unruly women around these days. Any man who finds a real woman to marry should be happy to have found one; not the ones parading as women who would rather be men.

Many (NOT ALL)so-called westernised women dont have this and that's why men are sceptical about joining with them

I think you'll find out that deep down, many of those women wish they were married. even the real westerner women would rather be with some man. you wont believe what some of them go through in their quest to have a man with them But publicly, they always say that they are enjoying their independence.

The answer to this question is not just one or two things,but some of this things are very obvious,

Women are becoming more independent nowadays,however this doesn't mean they are not well-behaved or have got personality issues or that they are not willing to settle down,its just that quite a lot of men out there nowadays are scared of committment,they are kind of egoistic and can't seems to cope with the women's success.

Check some families in nigeria and you will see that the men do maltreat the women but no women is ready to go through all those stuffs all in the name of staying in marriage.

Looking at it,women are becoming more involved in todays society compared to the previous years and as a result,certain things that favours men then no longer favours them,however,men have failed to realise this and they still want to live the way their forefathers have lived and ruled their homes ignring the fact that things have changed.

Nigeria men wnt to marry a mordern lady,treat her using the old methods used several years ago.

The fact ladies are always very happy during their wedding ceremonyis a normal thing,ladies tend to be more interested in ceremoies compared to men.

There are other factors contributing to this issue of women not getting married,but the above listed are definitey part of tem.

Some women who can't get/keep a man are quick to say 'i don't need a man'. I find men are more honest when they need a wife/partner, they will even ask you to link them with a friend. SOME girls keep fronting, hiding under women's lib and as soon as the hit the 35+ mark, stress under the realisation that biological clock it ticking. Instead of hating and cursing that the men are pigs. One needs to do a self assessment and analyse why there's pigs in your circle. No one is too big to make adjustments inorder to attract the right guy. Nothing but love. peace and out

Emeka,

That point is an excellent one. I have personally noted that as well. I say things I have seen repaetedly.

Naje,

The point is that the women feel lucky to have been married as it is not a mere wish come true. It is an honor to a woman if she is married.

Naje? What is your problem? Have you noticed that even the blondies respect marriage more? I am well travelled.

Women who dont marry at 40 would have preferred to have been married.

Scopium,

How many marriages have you attended? If a few, try and attend more. When you attend, try to observe who dances moreor is happier

Emeka,

Only a womans age would make me ashamed to walk up to her. If she is as old as my mum then I will cower.

I appraoch some of the women I know are high class. My chief problem is thier beauty and desperacy.

I have some of them as friends but dem no too fine and no get shape. I have dated older women more than I dated younger women - they never gave me money.

The most problem with these women is that they are hand cuffs. If they catch you a play boy, there will be no time to repent

Naje,

I wonder if you live in this same world as I live.

Did you not know that man was first left with animals before God made the woman? How then can animals be companions? You seem to practice sex with animals.

Lesbianism is something you refer to when you say services are not needed as before. We have more women invoving in the pervert act of lesbisnism.

If you are well read, you will know that there is no way that an animal can speak to a normal person. Then the person must be practicing some form of voodoo.

Please think better

Sammy,

I am well to do and will marry any women irrespective of her finances. All I need is a good age, looks and most importantly, behaviour.

Please, where I work I have a lot of young guys looking for wifes and they cant find a good one.

Please men want to settle early even under 30

Almond Joy,

So sorry this one caught up with you. Your defences show that you are in this category.

Please, where are your facts to show that more women are financially stable than most men? I have more hungry girls asking me for money now and then.

If your option is to go siddon de born, please note that I am available for that at no cost to you.

Rat pack you said? Please what shortage crisis do you refer here? I see you are good looking, if you are well behaved, why worry about divorce?

AlmondJoy,

Please I dont mean to be picky here but I thought to pick out a few tips that is common to women-mostly working class.

From my experience, women do not love anymore.

They only want you to be their means to an end. All the good women I know have men already fighting to marry them.

If women learn to love and respect their man, they will attract more men that they expect.

All the same, thanks for your reply.

The simple reason is that husbands are really scarce.The so-called unmaried career women envy women who have successful marriages.If they can turn back the hand of the clock they still want to get married.

Another reason is that emphasis is placed so much now on material things.Marriage has a lot of commitments and sacrifices which so many young people are not ready to put up with.In the case of ladies by the time they realize themselves age is no longer on their side.

I beg to differ!

You are clearly still very traditional in your way of thinking. You probably think so because of the community you identify yourself with.

There is an increase in unmarried women hitting the age 40.

Most of these women are living comfortable lifestyles and feel no need to adhere to traditional values because they are mentally westernized.

Please go do some research . . . . . you will be surprised.

I reason with the topic it seems true and to me the chief reason is that this days, women can now do most of the things men do and women who don't seem to have too much interest in men right from thier foundation are mainly the victims especially vey Educated and successful women; you know a man feels you women are inferior but when they see you high they will be ashamed to come to you.

Lesser UnMarried women

1. Financial increase in women - I dont tink so

2. Global Warming- I dont tink so cos women in the sahara region still marries

3. Lesser unmarried men- yes a posibility

4. Career- hmmmmmmm- a contributor

5. Less respect for traditional values due to increase wealth, silly civilization and copied tradition of the western world- :A great contributing factor

6. Economic Condition (especially in Naija)- Greatest Factor for real

Common sense is the password. Less women are married its probably because they don't have a man to marry. Women still want to marry even if they are career driven they might just not have children.

For starters, women are becomming more career oriented, and a lot prefer to establish themselves in their chosen careers before settling down.

Their earning power has also increased, and so has their confidence, and independence. They do not need to rely on a man to get by, they are successful in their own rights.

bible has nothing to do with it. i think women are lot independent these days and can afford to do as they wish which includes not get married. women run and own businesses these days. unfortunately, u cant eat ur cake and have it

i believe most unmarried women would rather have some sort of stable relationship (maybe married). my neigbhour is a 37 yr old fuccin rich woman with her own business stuff but she is not married. although she is successful in other areas of her life she wishes she is married.

in most cases they dropped themselves in the mess by choosing career over marriage. my neigbhour cries when her friends cancel a holiday or an outting they've planned for weeks because they have to attend to their husbands/partners
