(Web Desk) 2021 was the first year that more children were born after marriage.
Psychologist Dr. Max Blumberg emphasizes that the marriage rate has also been steadily decreasing since the 1970s. He claims that marriage is no longer important.
If you’re about to have a baby, you’re more likely to be single than married. Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that 2021 was the first year on record for more children being born out of wedlock. This is a long-term trend of falling marriage rates and an increase in cohabiting couples. in recent decades.
“Society required you to get married, even if the benefits weren’t great,” says Dr. Bloomberg of Hampshire. “But now that’s changed, and the costs of being married are often higher than being single. “Marriage can mean compromise. So you have less money, less career and less freedom.
“So for a lot of people it’s less expensive than marriage.” This is where they completely break down.
Traditionally, women needed economic stability and social mobility to marry. Even until the 1960s or later, men and women had defined roles, but modern social structures have made this less important and women’s lives are now much more flexible. They work, build a career, have children and take care of the house – whether they are married or not. Men are also becoming more flexible in their roles, but not as much as women.
Happy people marry more often than unhappy people because unhappy people are difficult to relate to and relate to. Thus, declines in mental health and happiness will be associated with declines in marriage.
But we know that happiness declines. The main reason is that people work harder to survive and people who work don’t have time for good relationships.
There is also a lot of pressure to make a certain amount of money and look a certain way. Young women’s self-esteem is particularly damaged by social media, as online connections do not bring as much happiness as offline connections. People have less time.
Now we are with another generation of people who choose not to marry. Most of them probably grew up without parents. Similarly, the media no longer focuses on married couples. So family patterns become less and less.
People over the age of 50 may raise an eyebrow about having a child out of wedlock. But most people don’t want to. This is probably related to the declining power of the church. Much of the traditional social stigma is rooted in religious beliefs. But the latest census showed that fewer people in Britain are church-going.
According to the Marriage Foundation, people from lower socioeconomic classes are less likely to marry than middle-class couples, and this is due to financial penalties. Their research shows that the welfare system penalizes couples who stay together more than those who don’t.
But it has been shown that if you offer material benefits, more people will marry. For example, Hungary’s marriage rate has been declining since the 1980s, but was then given an economic boost by the government and now has one of the highest marriage rates in Europe.
According to the National Wedding Survey, the average cost of a wedding in 2021 was £17,300. This was a 90 per cent increase on the previous year, which cost £9,100.
However, the benefits of marrying men are clear. Studies show that married men have better health and happiness. They also have less illness, better mental health, and recover faster, but this is not as clear for women.
In his 2020 book Happy: A Radical New Approach to the Good Life, behavioral scientist Paul Dolan of the London School of Economics analyzed global data. She found that women who are single and have no children often claim to be happier than married people. They also live longer. According to them, the effect of marriage in middle age may have damaged some women both mentally and physically.
