In general - it would do this entire thread good if posters took a closer look at actual historic and sociological facts instead of only their personal micro-census.
The traditional script is dead. At the low end of the socioeconomic ladder guys can no longer support families -- indeed they are often a financial liability. These guys better have looks -- otherwise they're SOL. At the high end women are no longer financially dependant. A good career is no longer enough to land a high status woman. High status guys now have to go to the gym as well as grad school.
