Waiting for marriage could prove costly

Posted: Updated:

A new book finds career women who wait until their late 20's to find a mate might have a tougher time finding that special man.

Two researchers at the University of Texas at Austin published a book called "Premarital Sex in America: How Young Americans Meet, Mate and Think About Marrying.'

They found that many women in the 18-23 age range, who don't need a man to support them financially, tend to date freely during their 20's.

The problem is that there will still be women who will have sex readily without commitment, and since men know this, *fewer* of them are willing to go steady.

The analysis is based on several national studies-- as well as interviews with people ages 18 to 23.
