If you wish to build wealth, say GOOD RIDDANCE to the struggle, have less financial stress and give your kids the best chance at life, you absolutely have to widen your dating pool, and you should not give two craps about whatever guilt trips the GAT-DL (Guardians of All Things Dark and Lovely) try to impose upon you.Telling black women to “marry down” has probably been the worst advice we’ve gotten for the past half century.
We are taught to bend and bend to our own detriment, so often marriage seems of no real benefit to us if it means we have grown child-men to support. A recent study by the Brookings Institute suggests that when black women marry, they marry someone with less education 58% of the time.Only 11% of black women marry men with more education.You can create a profile on this site for free but you’ll have to pay a monthly fee to access most features.offers great features to help black singles find love.Hmmm….you’re gold digging to expect to marry someone who worked as hard as you did to get what you got?
One implication of assortative mating is greater household income inequality, since education is a strong — and strengthening — predictor of earnings.Assortive mating is defined by the process in which people marry mates of equal or more education and financial mobility.Black women aren’t generally taught assortive mating, because doing so makes you open to the black community criticisms that you’re too “bourgie” or you’re gold digging.Work by Brookings’ Gary Burtless suggests that between 10 percent and 16 percent of income inequality in the United States is caused by the “growing correlation of earned incomes received by husbands and wives.”“By definition, the black female college graduates who do not marry are not assortatively mating, since they are not mating — defined as marrying — at all.This helps to explain why white women with college degrees are more than twice as likely as their black counterparts (29% v 13%) to be married to someone of equal or greater educational status,” the study says. The dating scene can get quite difficult, especially with our hectic lives.
