Study: Women Marry Down More Frequently Than Men
Posted February 13th, 2014 @ 6:30pm by KFBK News

A new survey by the Pew Research Center says that for the first time the percentage of women marrying a man with a lower education is greater than the percentage of men marrying a woman with a lower education. 

It's close, 21% vs. 20%, but researchers expect the gap to widen. 

The Los Angeles Times reports that in 1960, only about 7% of women fell into this category, but the number has risen steadily over the years as women have surpassed men in college graduation rates.
