“Study after study has shown that when men make less than women, women generally don’t want to marry them. Maybe they should want to marry them, but they don’t.

“More drug and alcohol abuse, higher incarceration rates, fewer families formed in the next generation. This is not speculation, it’s not propaganda from the evangelicals. It’s social science. Rich people know it best of all, that’s why they get married before they have kids. That model works.” – Tucker Carlson, on last night’s show.
