Wanted: Spouse With Car, Stocks, Bonds
Date:10/13/2011

THURSDAY, Oct. 13 (HealthDay News) -- Got a car? How about a bank account, stocks or bonds? If you answered "yes," you may find yourself also saying, "I do."

A new study finds that Americans who have financial assets such as a car or bank account are more likely to get married.

Researchers analyzed data from the U.S. National Longitudinal Survey of Youth and -- after controlling for other factors such as income, employment and family background -- found that owning a car increased the likelihood that a man would get married for the first time in a given year by 2.6 percent, while owning a financial asset boosted the probability by 1.5 percent. Personal wealth also increased women's chances of getting married, but to a lesser degree than men.

The findings, published in the September issue of the American Journal of Sociology, may help explain recent changes in marriage patterns in the United States, according to study author Daniel Schneider of Princeton University.

"What is perhaps most striking is the increasing stratification in marriage by race and education," Schneider said in a journal news release. "From 1980 to 2000, the percentage of white women who had been married by ages 25 to 29 had dropped by 13 percentage points to 68 percent, but the drop was far larger for blacks, dropping 25 points, to just 38 percent."

People with less education are also increasingly less likely to get married, he added.

"These gaps matter because a large body of social science literature suggests that marriage has beneficial effects on adults and children," Schneider said. "If those who are already disa
