I will also add that the fall in “marriageable” men coincides with a surge in “disabled” men. More and more families have a “disabled” partner. I am using quotes here because the disability system is broken and cannot sufficiently distinguish between truly disabled and not. Something I need to write about.

If I am not mistaken, once one begins receiving disability benefits, there are income and savings caps that, if broken, would eliminate those benefits. Thus, more and more people cohabitate, unmarried, to keep the tax money flowing.
