Kirsten Dunst, probably wonst (find a man to have children with)Posted: December 3, 2011
“I’m scared I won’t find a man to have children with”, says Kirsten Dunst in a new interview.
Chances are she won’t.
She’s only 30, so she’s a couple of rungs below panic stations but…it’s not looking good.
Here are some stats on marriage (yes, the traditional route but they’re still pretty telling I think):
According to the Pew Research Centre, a full 44% of Millennials (those born in the late-70s to 90s) and 43% of Gen X’ers think that marriage is becoming obsolete.
And in 1997, only 29% of Generation X’ers were married, compared with 1960, when more than half of those aged 18 to 29 had already tied the knot.
(Figures cribbed from Kate Bolick’s Atlantic article – thanks for the number crunching Kate, although us living it, don’t care much about the sums).
So Kirsten, no you probably won’t find a man unless you work really hard at finding one – you know, as hard as you work on your career – and then you’ll have to make a few sacrifices.
You’re financially independent so that’s something, successful in your work, and you seem healthy. So that’s two out of three, which is more than most these days.
Good luck with the rest of the equation.
