    I submit the “problem” is that girls are ready to get married (and “come on the market”) at the point they feel they are ready to become mothers and have children, whereas boys don’t become available until they feel they are ready to fulfill the primary task of a father, which is not (though many goyim disagree) making the woman pregnant, but rather supporting a family. Due to the current economic situation, that means many boys aren’t ready to become heads of households until their parnassah is secure.

    In the current economy, a boy who spends several years learning and then several years learning a trade/going to college won’t be ready to marry until his mid-20s at the earliest, whereas most girls are ready to marry in their late teens.
