Study: Black Women More Likely to Stay Single

Monday, June 1, 2009



If you've ever been a bridesmaid, then no doubt you've fantacized about that magical day when you yourself would be walking down the aisle, being given away by a barely composed father and proud, weepy mother.

According to a new study many women will be forever locked in bridesmaidom: Living Single, and there's nothing wrong with that.
Is there?
If you're a black women, a new study says you're much more likely to remain that way than a white woman.
Now, what does that mean? Primarily nothing, if you're comfortable and confident in yourself and your life's course.
However, if there's discontentment then this could be disparaging, but it doesn't have to be: The hard numbers indicate that while 21 percent of white women have never married, for black women that figure doubles to 42 percent.
A lot of the reasons for that center on another species of sorts: black men.
As we know, "prison" is a prominent term of what ails BMWs (know what that stands for?). Also, to be honest, a lot of black men no longer even want to get married.
Another cause could be black mens' preferences may be changing.
Whatever the case, the hard numbers show what they show. The bigger issue is how do black women feel about it? (hint, hint)

Thanks for adding the black man into the conversation. Whenever the singleness of black women is talked about the primary focus is always place on women and what they must not be doing. I'm very interested to know how men feel about marriage as well. Like, while women may have had childhood dreams of having the perfect dress and the dream wedding, have men had the same dreams?

I don't really have any real feelings about black women marrying or not marrying at the moment. Like you said, I guess it only becomes an issue if black women are desperately seeking marriage and are continuously looked over or turned down.
