One thought on “No, It’s Not “Marrying Down””

  1. As someone who graduated in the bottom tenth of his high school class and didn’t get a college degree, but nonetheless has had a pretty successful career doing “smart guy stuff,” I’ve always thought our culture placed too high a value on credentials.

    Now I begin to see how this works: “Listen up, chump. You’ll never get the girl if you don’t have a good job, and you’ll never get a good job if you don’t have a degree. So if you want a degree, you’ll believe what we TELL you to believe.”
