Marriageable Mate a Culprit?

As the Washington Post points out, there's been a sharp rise in the percent of women over 40 who don't have children. The result of better job opportunities for women? That's the theory raised in the article. What never gets raised in the marriageable mate issue. How many of these women never found a comparably educated male suitable for marriage?

The marriageable mate issue is so new, and so sensitive, that reporters rarely raise it. The New York Times published a Sunday magazine cover story on the rise of educated white women using sperm banks ... and never once raised the marriageable mate issue.
