The Beta Marriage: How Millennials Approach ‘I Do’

Despite racy headlines suggesting that college kids are increasingly choosing casual liaisons over serious relationships, a new study presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association finds that just under one-third of college students have had more than one partner in the past year. Gen Xers were actually more likely to have sex weekly or more frequently compared with millenials, according to the research. In other words, today as in the past, most students having sex are still doing so in the context of some type of ongoing relationship. College Students May Prefer Relationship Sex to Casual Hookups The research involved data on nearly 2, people from the General Social Survey, a nationally representative survey that asks a wide range of questions and has been carried out since Kathleen Bogle, author of Hooking Up: Bogle argues that what is now called hookup culture began in the s, after birth control became widely available and the age of marriage began rising. At that point, the couple ceased to be the center of college social life, and dating with the aim of marrying in college or shortly thereafter fell out of style. But Bogle and Monto do agree that students tend to think their peers hook up far more frequently than they actually do. One study found that on average, students report a total of five to seven hookups in their entire college career. But when Bogle surveyed students about how often they thought their fellow students were hooking up, they typically said seven times a semester.

The Reality of Hook Up Culture

People using Stone Age technology built voyaging canoes capable of traveling thousands of miles, then set forth against the winds and currents to find tiny dots of land in the midst of the largest ocean on Earth. And having found them, they traveled back and forth, again and again, to settle them—all this, to 1, years ago. The general scholarship on migrations seems well established, and most current researches now seek to understand the timing of the various colonizations.

Western Polynesia—the islands closest to Australia and New Guinea—were colonized around 3, years ago. But the islands of Central and Eastern Polynesia were not settled until 1, to years ago. This means that after arriving in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, Polynesians took a break—for almost 2, years—before voyaging forth again. Nobody knows the reason for The Long Pause, or why the Polynesians started voyaging again. An environmental catastrophe spreading across the island makes the mission urgent.

The Truth About College Hookups

Its director, Steven Spielberg, apparently isn’t much of a fan of it either. In fact, let’s leave the “apparently” out of it. I’m hoping some day I’ll see it again and perhaps like some of it.

This year I found myself hooking up with a Media Bro who was rude in a really hot way. Since I was on my period, I felt bloated, cranky, and hyper-aware of my bedroom’s lack of noodles, so I didn.

Which is true — for the monthly glossies and newsprinted dailies that once dominated checkout lines and city-corner kiosks. Their relevance, page counts and editorial staffs are dwindling with a quickness, advertisers shunning them in favor of the largely unfounded promises of the all-consuming and data-driven world of digital. But in their place, a new form of print journalism has risen, and even thrived. So what are they doing differently? Why are the monoliths of media being put to pasture while frisky young upstarts continue to find purchase?

The answer is simple, if a bit hard to define: Where clickbait is hastily assigned and edited, often riddled with factual errors and intended to leave the popular consciousness almost as quickly as it enters it, slow journalism is built for a long and healthy shelf life. It is typically printed on cardstock, distributed quarterly or bimonthly, and filled with rigorously edited longform stories and original photography, illustrations and graphics.

Slow journalism is not something to be tossed in the waste bin after a quick skim; it is meant to be displayed, ogled and admired. Independent magazines also — vitally — tend not to depend on ad dollars for their sustenance. Most come with a bit of sticker shock, which their readers see as a fair tradeoff for quality.

The only remaining question, then, is where to begin your own journey into the world of slow journalism. Racquet Quarterly A place for writers from many backgrounds — sports, fashion, longform — to comment on the culture of a sport they all love:

The truth, however and as usual, is more subtle and complicated. Rape is a detestable crime and one instance is one too many. Unfortunately, the numbers for rape in the Philippines are harrowing. Incidentally, one consequence of increased rape cases is that moves to amend the Constitution and legalize abortions of rape-related pregnancies could gain traction, as pro-lifers will have a difficult time defending against such a powerfully emotional argument.

The term ‘data cultures’ is intended to be generative and dynamic. It picks up on the very rich, complex and multivalent history of the concept of ‘culture’ (Williams, ) to tease out the complexity of data within digitally mediated dating and hookup cultures, and to move beyond simplistic ‘top-down, bottom-up’ understandings of data power.

Young women are still looking for love but want less needy men. And the Rise of Women is coming out next month, and the Atlantic is previewing it in its September issue with Hanna’s piece about the so-called “hook-up culture” that has conservatives in a decade-long huff and much of the media in a sex panic. Amanda Marcotte Amanda Marcotte is writer for Salon. The typical assumption about hook-up culture is that it’s something men imposed on women, exploiting modern contraceptives and sexual liberty to get away with having sex with women without having to commit or do anything icky, like pretend to like them.

The narrative has always sat uneasily with me, as it’s based on the presumption that women are so foul that men will only put up with them in order to get sex.

New York’s status as a center for European classical music can be traced back to the early 19th century. The New York Philharmonic , formed in , did much to help establish the city’s musical reputation. The first two major New York composers were William Fry and George Frederick Bristow , who in famously criticized the Philharmonic for choosing European composers over American ones.

His most important work was the Rip Van Winkle opera, which most influentially used an American folktale rather than European imitations. Gershwin was a songwriter with Tin Pan Alley and the Broadway theatres, and his works synthesized elements of many styles, including the music of New York’s Yiddish theatre, vaudeville, ragtime, operetta, jazz and the post-Romantic music of European composers.

Gershwin’s work gave American classical music unprecedented international recognition. His works included the Organ Symphony , which earned him comparisons to Igor Stravinsky , and the music for the ballet Appalachian Spring and the Copland Piano Variations. In New York, jazz became fused with stride an advanced form of ragtime and became highly evolved. Among the first major New York jazz musicians was Fletcher Henderson , whose jazz orchestra, first appearing in , helped invent swing music.

The swing style that developed from New York’s big jazz bands was catchy and very danceable, and was originally played largely by black orchestras. Later, white bands led by musicians like Jimmy Dorsey and Benny Goodman began to dominate and produced a number of instrumentalists that had a profound effect on the later evolution of jazz.
