12603網上訂票:新時代的男人都渴求“全能太太”

Audie Cornish (Host): It’s time now to talk about men.

Unidentified Woman: In today’s society, to be a man you have to get up every morning, go to the same job, provide for your family.

Unidentified Man #1: The biggest thing of being a man is to have her say you’re the best daddy. I mean, I can’t respect a man that don’t take care of his kids.

Unidentified Man #2: I’m married. I’ve got two daughters and four grandkids. And that’s what it means to be a man. 1)Uphold your vows, stay around, raise your kids, do the best you can.

Audie: We’ve been exploring notions of 2)masculinity and what it means to be a man in America these days. But today, we’ll talk about men’s roles and expectations at home.

Stephanie Coontz: If you are a man in America, there’s a very good chance you will be married at some time in your life. But there’s a much smaller chance than in the past that you will spend most of your adult life in marriage, make all of your decisions there and make all of your life-course transitions there. That’s the big difference.

Audie: That’s Stephanie Coontz, professor of family studies at Evergreen State College and author of a number of books, including “Marriage, a History.” Stephanie, thanks for joining us.

Stephanie: My pleasure.

Audie: So first, what is the chance that the average man will be married at some point in his life?

Stephanie: Well, most 3)demographers think that about 85% of men will marry at some point. That would be lower than the high point in all of American history in the 1950s, when 95% married.

Audie: And I understand there have been some shifts when it comes to class—right—and socio-economic status in terms of what men are getting married or not.

Stephanie: Well, that’s a very interesting change. Back in the 1950s and ’60s, there was very little difference between the marriage rates of collegeeducated men, high-income men and lower-income men. And then in the 1970s, there were rises in divorce for both. But since then, we’ve seen a huge 4)divergence. In general, all men are marrying at an older age than before. Today, college-educated men are much more likely to get married and much less likely to divorce than their less educated 5)counterparts.

Audie: Stephanie Coontz, once men get married, what are their expectations in terms of their own role and the role they believe a wife should play and compare that to say 50 years ago?
