Dating a bitter divorced man
There’s one exception to this rule: Men and women who are seriously committed couples while still in school often get married shortly after they finish their formal education.
The responses they elicited were generally straightforward.All of a sudden, they have a nice car and an apartment and an income.They’re reluctant to even consider marriage for a few years, because they want to sow their wild oats.She said, “You reinforce the myth that the reason men don’t commit is that the women in their lives do something wrong. In most cases, it’s the man in a relationship who decides he isn’t ready or doesn’t want to get married, and he makes this decision without any help from the woman." After telling Beth that more than three hundred women had worked with me on the marriage research and not one had made the comment she just offered, I apologized. My interviews with single men had shown there were men who would not commit.
Beth was also right when she said that if I could help women identify which men were more likely to commit, I would be performing a real service.
As a reward for her insight, I put her in charge of the project.
