New stats about going stag in America

A new study conducted by MarketTools and funded by Match.com examines what it means to be single in America.

Some of the study's findings challenge traditional conceptions of gender-roles, infidelity and children. For example, the study found that men want to marry just as much as women and have more of a desire to have children. Dr. Helen Fisher, Chief Scientific Adviser for Match.com and a Biological Anthropologist at Rutgers University, helped conduct the study and discusses the its findings with American Morning's Kiran Chetry.

    Hmm- man may "want to marry just as much as women and have more of a desire to have children" but they have all the time in the world to do so and women do not. Our culture fights against nature, and natures always gonna win. Meanwhile, men my own age will marry women far younger than me once they finally want to "settle down".
