Across the globe, women are increasingly experiencing waithood, a term that refers to delaying decisions, like finishing an education and embarking on a career before getting married.
The term was coined in 2008 and relates to both genders. At its root, it is economic.
Young men across large parts of the world are holding back from relationships and starting families because of unemployment and low wages. This is especially true in places where high dowry payments are expected.
Even places like Greece, Spain, and France are experiencing age-related fertility problems because young people can't afford the trappings of adulthood.
The situation of singledom is increasing in women globally.
More and more educated and ambitious women are finding themselves unable to find the mate that they want at the time they’re searching.
The kind of men they are searching for, ready to commit and to start a family, and with similar levels of education and ambition, are not available in the same numbers as are needed.
The alternative is either for a paradigm shift or waithood where people put the next stage of their lives on hold because they are unable to find a partner or are held back financially.
