@star_dust:  Since it came from Fox News, I am inclined to think that they’re full of shit.

Hmmm, I find this quite interesting. I definitely think it is a competition. Many men do feel the need to be the providers for their family and if they are not doing so feel underachieved or not needed. 

I am interested to know what other bees think of this issue.

@WillyNilly:  Agreed. Maybe some men need to start looking at things differently if this is the case lol.

This is the supposition of one person. The reasons as to why are going to be a lot more complicated than one person can guess at.

Other factors to consider

In the 50’s men cheated without as many repurcussions, not as easy now

In the past, the makeup of our society was very different. Our socieconomic makeup is different which lends to different beliefs.

Maybe marriage is being put off to a later age for men these days, and the survey didnt include that age bracket

etc

I would also add that it states “One of the most important things” how is this defined? does this mean it does or does not make the top 1, 2, 5? What is replacing it, healthy kids? career? singlehood? money? etc. 

What was the population sample? Was it representative. Way too often these surveys end up being incredibly faulty because of bad survey or experiment design.

Not enough information for any real learnings in this article.

How about in this age of constant distraction and endless options, a lot of people (women and men alike) pretty much have a harder time committing to one option/person.

Men aren’t as subjected to the scrutiny of having to have a perfect body, perfect looks, as women are. They can be pickier. They age better. They aren’t constrained by fertility time limits. They can take their time more freely than most women feel they can.

For some it might be feeling emasculated by a woman’s income and professional prowess, but I seriously doubt it’s the root cause.

@star_dust:  she admits that her population for her ‘study’ was a subculture of all of her studies. So I don’t think her sample size is accurate for an entire population. And yes, some women may be angry, and some men are assholes. She is an author and as such used creative license to write an article dictating the feelings of 30% of her ‘hundreds if not thousands’ of men. 1. Was it hundreds or thousands? I mean, seriously. 2. What about the other 70% that are excited to marry and not worried about ‘angry’ women? Once again, a contributor to Fox News should not be trusted as they’re proven to consistently skew facts to make news.

Oh the frail, frail ego of man. Lol. Maybe it’s that some men suck and it used to be easier to look less sucky compaired to someone who had no way to better themselves.
