52% of American #women were unmarried or separated in 2021.

The rising share of #single women households has been driven entirely by women who have never married. Over 80% of women under 30 have never tied the knot in 2021…

Despite all the readily-available research about the Homo sapiens female fertility window and attractiveness to the opposite sex, the number of never-married women has grown 20% over the past decade.

Women’s median age of first #marriage was just over 28 years old in 2022, which is about 1,5 years later than a decade ago and nearly 8 years later than in the early 1960s.

The increase also reflects a growing share of women who never marry. Around 6% of those aged 65 or older were never married in 2021, up from 4% in 2011.

Bottom line: the family unit disappears, the #solitude increases. Atomized and #polarized, we’re screaming at each other through the tiny screens, if not streaming the série du jour.

“#America is a kind, generous place… if you have money. It’s a rapacious, violent place if you don’t have #money.

To be wealthy in America is to be loved. People find you interesting, they want to know you. You have a broader selection of mates.

I think about money a lot. I did nothing but pretty much #work for 20 years. I don’t remember much else but work. It cost me my hair. It cost me my first #marriage. And it was worth it.”

— Scott Galloway.

How bleak of a life, how shallow of a #civilization? And generation after generation built it, knowingly, on purpose. But worry not, Scott believes #depression can be solved with antidepressants.

If you have the money. More pills, more money, more work, more pills, more…

Oh, cool, books about what we don’t owe. As in “men don’t owe you money, #marriage or kids” and “your government doesn’t owe you protection from assassination”?🤷🏻‍♂️

Bon courage with the noble battle against biology

Personally, I’m more into books about #CRISPR human DNA tuning.😂
