Kay Hymowitz has just come out with Marriage and Caste in America. Earlier, I blogged about her article of the same name, which is the lead essay in the book. I will blog about the book over the next few days. Today I wanted to take just one striking statistic from the title essay.
Of all American mothers with a college education, only 10% do not live with their husbands.
Of all American mothers with less than bachelor's degree, 36% do not live with their husbands.
This is the foundation of the growing gap between the haves and have nots in this country.
