|Education and Marriage Press Release|
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Now a new study by NYU sociologists Paula England and Jonathan Bearak shows that college-educated women are, for the first time, not only less likely to divorce but just as likely to marry as any other group of women, and much more likely to marry than women who dropped out of high school. A series of graphs, produced by England and Bearak for a new CCF fact sheet, "Women's Education and their Likelihood of Marriage: A Historical Reversal," demonstrate that although women with a college education marry later than other women, they are now as likely to marry as other women, and much more likely to stay married. For all figures and details on the data source, please visit the report.
