Myth-Busting for Matrimaniacs, Daily Show Style


marriage mythsIā€™m a social scientist and an author. I like to explain things with numbers and words. In some ways, though, my Explainer-in-Chief hero is Jon Stewart. To me, there is nothing quite like great humor ā€“ especially Daily Show style ā€“ to make a point in a way that sticks.

    Loved that clip.

    I did some research into singles and the 2012 election. Obama won single women by 36%, Romney won married women by 7%. Obama won single men by 16%, Romney won married men by 22%. Kind of what you’d expect, given Romney’s advantage among men and Obama’s among women, and the preference singles have for Democrats.

    I’m hoping that the Republican party, while musing on it’s defeat, will realize it will have to try to appeal to singles. And that will help reduce the stigma of being single.
