The New Zealand Marriage Strike
One thing that gets little press is that New Zealand men are on a marriage strike. This is not something feminsists want to hear so it is not reported or is dismissed. Sticking their head in the sand is not stopping the marriage strike though.
The rate of marraiges has fallen sharply in the last 12 years according to Statistics NZ. The rate of marriage was 16 per 1000 adults in 1999. In 2011 it was less than 12 per 1000. The reduction in this rate has been accelerating. Since 2008 the rate has been falling by more than half a marriage per 100 every year. At some stage next year the marriage rate will be less than 1% and still falling.
Excuses like people are delaying marriage don’t explain it. The simple truth is that people simply aren’t getting married. The reason they aren’t getting married is because men aren’t marrying them.
Why would they?
The other issue is that more men are simply leaving the country.
many of the ones that stay seek out a foriegn bride.
Women are settling for de facto relationships.
This is why NZ legislation – particularly under Labour – traps men in de fcto relationships as default marriages. So that these men can be screwed over something that they did not intentionally sign up for.
We need to reverse de facto relationship legislation. it is morally reprehensible to legally bind someone to a contract that they never signed or agreed to based solely on their living arrangements.
The whole thing is designed to try to stop women experiencing the consequences of screwing men over. To counter the marriage strike. It wont work. it just delays things and makes them worse. Quality men will simply refuse to have any long term relationship with NZ women at all.
I hope NZ women enjoy their cats.
I feel sorry for my daughter. What a shitty future she has.
