I don't think the lack of marriage is about sex.  I think it's just generally more difficult, financially, now to start a family.  Most young people graduate with a boatload of debt.  Housing prices are higher, particularly in cities, than they were in the past.  In many cities, young people can barely rent a place to live, let alone buy a home.  I believe that, less religion, and growing up in a culture where divorce is prevalent, are all factors that mean marriage is not valued.


And the word is out with men that they will get financially destroyed in divorce court. And women are encouraged to seek careers and being a housewife is not cool.

Prenups will negate the effects of divorce.  But, if a man wants a housewife, he should have to pay a significant sum on a divorce, as the woman has given up her earning potential to take care of him, and a home.


I think most men want their wives to bring an income into marriage.  That's a big complaint on the RW forums about their American husbands.  The average wage generally isn't enough to support a family on one income.

After the fall of communism, the biggest mistake Boris Yeltsin's regime made was not to disband the KGB altogether. Instead it changed its name to the FSB and, to many observers, morphed into a gangster organisation, eventually headed by master criminal Vladimir Putin. - Gerard Batten

The consequences of immigrant admissions — generally speaking — include a range of the good, the indifferent, and the bad.

But there is one small category of admissions that includes nothing but failures, a category that the Department of Homeland Security never mentions, in administration after administration, and never seems to do anything about. But we may see, at least momentarily, a drop in them.

These are the 3,000-5,000 applications approved each year bearing the gentle term of “self-petitioning spouses”.

The immigration law is heavily tilted toward admitting alien newlyweds; in the last year for which we have data (FY 2019), 1,031,765 new permanent resident aliens were counted. Of these, fully 29.9 percent were admitted because they are married to U.S. citizens or to green card holders, with the former outnumbering the latter by about nine to one.

Within the newlyweds category, there is a troubling subset accounting for about 1.5 percent of the marriages. These relate to aliens whose marriages have collapsed, or were never genuine love matches in the first place. Routinely, the new alien spouse is sponsored for immigration by his or her resident partner. In cases where the marriage no longer operates, the alien may charge abuse and, under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), file a petition on her (or his) own behalf, thus the term “self-petitioning” alien.

The VAWA includes all sorts of provisions that help aliens making marginal claims of abuse; that the alien may have committed fraud, for instance, does not matter.

In each of these VAWA cases, the marriage has failed; either the resident spouse has, in fact, abused the alien spouse, or the alien has made false claims of such abuse (which can be devastating to the citizen). Under the INA, in either case the alien can be admitted, and DHS makes little effort to sort out the facts, and routinely grants the alien’s petition, usually without permitting the alleged abuser to testify (see here and here).

 In the 12-month period that ended Sept. 30, 967,400 adults swore the oath of allegiance at naturalization ceremonies across the country, the USCIS figures show. When taking into account cases of children who derived citizenship from their U.S.-citizen parents and other naturalization cases, a total of 1,023,200 immigrants became U.S. citizens in fiscal year 2022.

The number of adult immigrants who became U.S. citizens was only greater in 1996 and 2008, when 1,040,991 and 1,046,539 adults were naturalized, respectively, historical government statistics show.
