Almost twice as many women as men consider it “very important” that their future spouse have a “steady job”.
… Never-married women place a great deal of importance on finding someone who has a steady job—fully 78% say this would be very important to them in choosing a spouse or partner. For never-married men, someone who shares their ideas about raising children is more important in choosing a spouse than someone who has a steady job.
Could it be that women still think they’d like to stop working when they have children? Yes. One recent survey found that 84% of working women want to stay home to raise their children.
