Marriage makes men better: the economic benefits of settling down

Posted on September 27, 2020Categories pjgcjovxTags , , , , , , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on Marriage makes men better: the economic benefits of settling down

first_imgMercatorNet 9 September 2016Family First Comment: Superb article on why marriage matters – to men.Not just a piece of paperIt is important first to respond directly to the idea that marriage is just a piece of paper. When I was conducting interviews in New York City back in 2005-2006, I heard over and over again from a lot of young adults, “It is just a piece of paper. It doesn’t really matter.” What they did not realize is that the science is telling us a very different story about how marriage affects women and especially men.Men are transformed in a number of ways. We will focus here primarily on the economic story, but it is also the case that when men get married, they spend less time with their friends, their buddies, and they spend more time with kin. They attend bars and taverns less and they attend church more in the wake of getting married and having a family.We can begin first by thinking about work effort, and one admittedly crude indicator of effort is work hours. What we see is that married men, both when they are in the 28-30 years old stage and the mid-40s stage, work about 400+ hours more per year than their single peers with a similar educational, racial, and ethnic background.[1] But it is not just that they are working more; they are working more strategically and working smarter when they are married compared to being single.Two indicators of this come from the work of Elizabeth Gorman, a sociologist who did this research when she was at Harvard.[2] What she finds is that married men are much less likely to quit their job until they have lined up a new job to jump to. By contrast, the single guys, if they are not happy with their work, will quit that job and then try to find something new. Of course, the first strategy is much more prudent than the second.Another important point to make here is that married men are much less likely to get fired. There is something about their style of work or maybe the fact that they seem to be more responsible when they are married. What Gorman finds is that these patterns in the data persist even after you control for a lot of background characteristics in the men themselves, things like their educational background, their race, their ethnicity, etc. Something about marriage seems to be making men behave in a more strategic fashion in today’s workforce. This all adds up in real dollar terms. What we see is that married men make about $16,000 more than their single peers personally, both as young adults and as middle-aged adults.[3]There is a lot of discussion today about this issue of marriage and class in America. One might wonder, “Well, is this story applicable to men who don’t have college degrees? There must be something about being college educated and being more affluent connecting nicely with marriage in ways that are helping to drive the story.” The answer to that question is still yes.In fact, not only do you see the same story among men who do not have college degrees, but in some ways, the premium is a little bit bigger for the guys who do not have a college degree compared to guys who do have a college degree. Marriage is valuable for men up and down the economic ladder. It is also valuable for men across racial and ethnic lines. There is a marriage premium for African American men, and the report shows the same basic story for Hispanics in America.[4] Marriage benefits men across racial, ethnic, and class lines today in our country.The pushback against marriageWhen you make this claim in the public square today, if you read about it on Slate or in the Washington Post or some other venue, you are going to get a lot of pushback. This is not a story people want to hear in some sectors of our society. One of the arguments that they will respond with is, “You know what? This is all about selection. There is something about these guys, the marrying kind (if you will), that makes them better men. They are better husbands, they are better fathers, they are better workers, and it is these underlying traits, not marriage per se, that help to account for these findings.”There are problems with this idea, and two empirical examples suggest that it is not only about selection. The first example is the longitudinal research done by Steven Nock at the University of Virginia. Nock tracked men over time and found that they increase their hours and increase their income in the wake of getting married and that they do better compared to their peers who are not getting married.[5]Interestingly, he also found that getting divorced reduces men’s hours and reduces men’s income. Moving into marriage and moving out of marriage for men is linked to economic changes. A second exmaple is a study which looked at trends in Minnesota and found that married male identical twins earned about 26% more compared to thir twins who had not married.[6] Once again, this evidence pushes back against the suggestion that the wage premium is all about selection.READ MORE: http://www.mercatornet.com/features/view/marriage-makes-men-better-the-economic-benefits-of-settling-down/18645Keep up with family issues in NZ.

first_imgThe French Open will allow a maximum of 11,500 spectators per day to adhere to strict health protocols and curb the spread of COVID-19 when the Grand Slam begins later this month.The French Tennis Federation disclosed this on Monday. The French Open, traditionally held in May and June, was postponed earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will now be held at Roland Garros from September 27 to October 11.France has recorded nearly 31,000 deaths, according to a Reuters tally.The FFT said a maximum of 5,000 spectators per day would be allowed to watch matches at both the Philippe-Chatrier and Suzanne-Lenglen showcourts.It added that only 1,500 fans would be allowed at the smaller Simonne-Mathieu court.Seating arrangements would have a gap of one seat on each row and no more than four people can sit side-by-side while wearing masks would be mandatory for anyone over the age of 11. The qualifying rounds, which begin on September 21, will be held behind closed doors.The FFT had said in July it planned to allow up to 60 per cent of the usual number of fans.A record 520,000 spectators attended last year’s event, according to organisers.Rafa Nadal and Ash Barty, who both skipped the US Open in New York due to COVID-19 concerns, are expected to defend their titles at Roland Garros.Tournament officials said that all players must stay in one of two designated hotels “in order to respect the health and safety measures.” Serena Williams has opted to stay in private housing as she hunts for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title at the US Open.Williams said players should have the option to stay elsewhere if fans are attending matches.“I’m super conservative because I do have some serious health issues. So, I try to stay away from public places, because I have been in a really bad position in the hospital a few times,” she told reporters at Flushing Meadows after reaching the quarter-finals.Williams suffered blood clots and life-threatening pulmonary embolisms while giving birth to her daughter Olympia in 2017.RelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Djokovic clinches fifth Italian Open title “So I don’t want to end up in that position again,” she added. “For me, I try to keep a 12-foot distance instead of six.”Reuters/NAN.Tags: Alliance for Surviving COVID-19COVID-19FansFrench OpenRoland Garroslast_img read more

The Mick Winters-trained Missunited was last seen finishing a fair fourth in the Red Mills Hurdle at Gowran, but was second best in the market at 11-8. Missunited edged out Twigline in a pulsating finish to the Kerry Group EBF Mares Novice Hurdle at Limerick.center_img Barry Geraghty went for home first aboard Missunited, but Ruby Walsh covered his move and Twigline took a narrow lead jumping the final obstacle. It was nip and tuck all the way up the run-in, but Missunited won the argument by half a length. Winters said: “It was a ding-dong battle between two top men and there was no quarter given. “She jumped fantastic during the week and again here. “I was more confident early in the week but the ground was terrible and she will be better on better ground. “She will be entered in a Grade One at Fairyhouse and then Punchestown as well.” last_img read more

Cricket News Sachin Tendulkar Says Standard Of Test Cricket Has Dropped, Monotony Has Crept In ODIs

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar’s contribution to the game of cricket has been immense during his 24-year playing career. From his debut in 1989 to his final Test in 2013, Tendulkar was the acknowledged gold standard of batting in ODIs and Tests. Tendulkar is the leading run-getter in both ODIs and Tests and he is the only player in history to have 100 international tons. With 18426 ODI runs and 15921 runs in Tests, Tendulkar is a legend on the field. Off the field, he continues to being a mentor to youngsters and he has also given his input on the state of the game and the challenges that it faces.In an exclusive chat with Hindustan Times, Tendulkar has outlined that the standard of Test cricket has dropped due to the lack of rivalries and that is the biggest challenge that the longest format of the game is facing. “If you start looking at recent Test records, with very few can you say they are strong teams. It is alarming without any doubt. The standard of play has dropped and we can see that. Something needs to be done about it,” Tendulkar told Hindustan Times. Tendulkar had stressed the need for big rivalries in order to make Test cricket exciting during the Hindustan Times 2017 Leadership summit.In that interaction, he had said, “Test cricket is not dying. People’s mindsets have changed. It’s about the big rivalries. There was a time when everyone wanted to beat West Indies. Later, it was Australia. They had nine world class players and two terrific players. If three-four of their players clicked and did the job, they would win.”However, Tendulkar has expressed concern abot the ODI game, stating that monotony had set in the game and that was the main reason he had proposed the 25-25 formula. In that, he had suggested a team would have batted 25 overs, then the opposition would have batted 25 overs. Tendulkar cleared the misconception that he was talking about mini-Test cricket with 20 wickets.Also Read | This Woman Cricketer Breaks Sachin Tendulkar’s 30-Year-Old World Record, India Thrash West Indies”There is monotony in the one-day game without doubt. That is why I made the proposal; to remove monotony and more to neutralise the dew factor advantage. Should world events be spaced out? Are there are too many of them? There are many venues where dew is a decisive factor. In the current format, toss basically decides who will win, unless one team is playing terrible cricket. If you bat second and sensibly, the bowlers have very limited chance with the wet ball. There one side has full advantage because they have won the toss and bowled in dry conditions. The other side has to fight the opposition as well as the conditions. How do we neutralise that? In 25-25, the side bowling first will get to bowl third, so they will also bowl under lights in the second half but there will be less dew,” Tendulkar said.last_img read more
