“Why would you get married? Why would anybody get married,” asked House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Putting aside the fact that the 73-year-old Congresswoman has, herself, been married for five decades, Democrats don’t want you to marry. And, of course, it’s political.
But don’t take it from me.
Shortly after John Kerry’s ‘2004 presidential defeat, Mark Mellman a season Democratic pollster reported that Kerry had won unmarried voters by 18 points to Bush’s 15 point win of married voters resulting in a 33 point marriage gap. “Never-marriad women are one of the most Democratic segments in the population . . . 63 percent of them identify as Democrats and our data suggests about two-thirds voted for Kerry,” Mellman confessed.
But Mellman was just getting warmed up. “Non-marriage is on the rise,” he wrote. “Divorce, later marriages, increased life expectancy, and other forces have led to a decline of more than 25 percent since 1970 in the proportion of Americans who are married.” Mellman’s conclusion? “Mobilizing culturally progressive or economically hard-pressed singles should be a key priority for Democrats.”
And there you have it. Don’t work, don’t save, don’t get married, vote Democrat, and die.
