Coeds And Marriage The American girl marries when she pleases and whom she pleases. This year there will be about 1.8 million marriages in the United States. Some 220,000 brides will utter fervent “I do's” during June. And the majority of them will be teen-agers. Their grooms will be only slightly older. Surveying marriage trends, the Population Reference Bureau, Washington, D. C., issued a hot tip for worried parents who hope that their daughters will stop, look and listen before taking an impulsive plunge into matrimony: Get her into college fast! On the average, a college . . . Approximately 596,300 stu dents make up the college class of 1964. Approximately 38 per cent are women. . . . Women will receive almost 40 percent of the bachelor’s and first professional degrees, a third of the master’s degrees, but only 11 percent of the doctoral de grees. . . . Marriage has been woven firmly into the fabric of campus life since the GI first invaded college campuses after World War II. The mothers and fathers of today’s graduates would have been expelled from most colleges a generation ago had they mar- (Another 13 percent of the June graduates expect to marry before the summer is over.) . . . Four out of five of the married graduates are men. The dearth of women reflects in part the fact that many coeds who marry drop out of college to bolster the family exchequer, often making it possible for their husbands to graduate. Marriage Age . . . The most frequent age at marriage for women college graduates is 22 years; for high school graduates 18 years, and for women who did not attend ates have jobs, according to the Bureau of the Census. In 1960, 42 percent of the married college graduates were employed and only 32 percent of the married high school graduates. ... A college degree is a pass port to better jobs. The 1960 Census reported that of all women with an income only 6 percent received more than $5,000. Twenty-four percent of women college graduates had an income of over $5,000, as did 45 percent of those who had completed some graduate work.

The 1960 Census also re vealed that in 3 percent of all American families, both husbands and wives had college degrees. Women were more “degree conscious” than men, however. Six out of every 10 men gradu ates chose wives with degrees. Four out of 10 of the men married women who had no college train ing. . . . Since 1949, the number of women who graduate from college each year has nearly doubled, in creasing from 117,900 to 224,400, That the number of men has in creased by only 23 percent can he mainly attributed to the dis appearance of G.I.’s from college campuses. . . . The college dropout ratio is the same for both sexes: four out of every ten who enter. Among the women, marriage is most frequently given as the reason for leaving school. 18 19 20 21 . . . Approximately one-third of all who receive bachelor’s and first professional degrees in June expect to go on to graduate school, and a majority will be men. Marriage Rate In 1950, when the U. S. popu lation was 151 million, the mar riage rate was 11.0 per thousand; and there were 1.7 million mar riages during the year. In June 1964, the population is 191 mil lion; the 1964 marriage rate is expected to be between 9 and 9.5 per thousand—a slight increase over the 8.8 rate for 1963. The rate has been inching up again for several months, and this trend J | 1 L 22 23 24 25 AGE is expected to continue. Marriages for 1964 are expected to total about 1.8 million, as compared with 1.6 million in 1962 and 1.65 million in 1963. Brides and grooms in the U. S. are younger and closer in age at first marriage than are those in any other major urban-industrial country in the world. Our age- at-marriage pattern now is closer to the Asian than to the Euro pean. More women marry at 18 than at any other age; and more men at 21. Implications Students of population have long recognized that education 26 27 28 29 POPULATION REFERENCE BUREAU. INC affects time of marriage and fer tility. Commenting on the cur rent trends, Robert C. Cook, President of the Population Ref erence Bureau, said: “The average age at marriage has been declin ing in the United States over the past fifty years. Today, the modal age of marriage—the most frequent age at which women get married—is 18. Girls who gradu ate from high school tend to marry somewhat later, though the marrying high school student is no longer a rarity. Girls who attend college marry considerably later than those who do not. This is true even though a goodly number of coeds marry before they graduate. J. W.
