Why Is The Number Of Black Women Who Have Never Been Married So High?

Dismiss

VIA: CNN

Forty-five percent of black women in America have never been married, compared with 23 percent of white women, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey in 2006.

This fear causes some women to make hasty decisions like staying in unfulfilling relationships that lead to unsuccessful marriages, which end in divorce (another dismal statistic). Or just the opposite: Women become so fearful of making the wrong choice, they find themselves surrounded by a moat with no bridge to their final destination: marriage.

Why do you think the ratio is so high for black women who have never been married compared to women of other races?

Do you think the ratio so high because black women limit interracial dating?
