Millennial Men Fall Behind

by Maggie Gallagher

Men between the ages of 18 and 28 are 25 percent less likely to have a college degree than women in that age group (15 percent versus 20 percent), according to a new Pew analysis of U.S. Education Department data. 

They are also less likely to report “some college” (34 percent of men versus 40 percent of women). 

This is bad news for both men and women, as the New York Times reports women who marry men who make less money than they do are the unhappiest wives, on average.
