  • Man deficit in the US.

    Seems that there are not enough educated American men.
    Suppose it explains the recent influx of American women over here.

      Why is a story about educated English women not being able to find educated English men in the North American section?

        From the article:

        They said the "man deficit" was worse in countries where more women were going to university, as in the UK.

        Prof Adam Balen, president of the British Fertility Society, said that he had noticed a "big shift" in UK society, with many university-educated women delaying starting a family.

        "In my clinic I certainly see more older women seeking fertility treatment than in the past," he said.

        The research comes amid a sex imbalance at British universities. In the academic year 2015-2016, 56% of UK students were women and 44% men, according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency

        Maybe American men should visit England?

            The reaseach was done by Yale university, which I understand is a small further education college in the US? It was also about US women. As it was an article for the BBC there was a British angle added. I can see why American women have the come over here to find eligible men...

              The article clearly discusses the lack of educated men in England. Take a close look at what I quoted from your linked article...

              English women can't find eligible English men.........somehow you think American women are going to have better luck than English women?

                Me thinks these people have been watching too much sex and the city and other crappy series, from which they have gathered a plethora of advice leading to no man wanting to marry them.

                  Not long ago there was a significant shortage of eligible women as their only quality was being attractive, cooking and cleaning. But, no one really complained while they were getting a free ride in life. More women making contributions to society is a welcomed change. Bearing in mind, if the issue is money, university rates doesn't tell the whole story. Men have more options for good paying jobs that don't require degrees and still earn more than women.

                    Could you expand on this?

                      Based on the circumstantial evidence of knowing ladies who are fans of such programmes, I would agree with you.

                        Ah...

                        The article is sexist and stereotypes gender roles! This from the BBC! They've gone off the SJW / Leftist path. Heads need to roll at the BBC for this! Organize a violent protest immediately!

                          The funny thing is that the article spends most of the time discussing how there is an educated male problem in the UK. The first sentence in the article was this:

                          Professional women are freezing their eggs due to a "dearth of educated men to marry", a US study has claimed.

                          I think the OP saw that but didn't rest of the article because the title and the first two posts don't match what the article is saying.....

                            150 women is far too small a sample from a nation of over 300 million, and 80% of that is only 120 women in total.

                            Without knowing their exact circumstances, projected income, specific requirements in a husband and so forth, the poll is meaningless.

                              If I was dating someone in the 1950's I could say that and it'd be true. Today though things are different, more is expected of women. My girlfriend works so I have no reason to say it to her.

                              Back in the 50's only about 30% of women worked, and the amount that made enough money to be financially independent was even lower. So they need to be cognizant of their history when answering these type of polls.

                              Could you expand on this?
                              Good paying jobs that don't require degrees are typically labor intensive or dangerous, so you see more men than women filling those type of positions.
