Denise, I think I get your point here. However, I suspect you will find this is changing in significant ways. Fewer and fewer people are marrying. The underlying causes of homelessness, incarceration and felony murder are such problems as addiction and promiscuity. These are gender-neutral problems.
I work (volunteer) with the homeless - the VAST majority of homeless are women with children (no dads) The average age of a homeless person (in NH) is 9 years old. It will only get worse. Fewer and fewer men are eager to marry/support women who are educated, creative, mentally stable, geniuses, too. Fact seems to be that NO ONE wants the responsibility of children.
