SYDNEY -- Women with a university degree are more likely to marry than their less-educated sisters, according to Australian research released Monday that reverses long-held views about bookish females.

The Monash University report, based on analysis of data from the 2006 national census, suggests that wedlock was increasingly becoming the province of the well-educated and wealthy.

"There's something new going on, particularly among women," said researcher Genevieve Heard of the university's Centre for Population and Urban Research.

"It's long been assumed that more educated women are less traditional and more financially independent and are therefore less likely to need to or want to marry. And indeed, this assumption has been borne out in the data for a long time," she told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

"But now, in the 2006 data, we can see that in fact the pattern has reversed so that women with post-school qualifications, especially those with degrees, are now in fact more likely to be married than their counterparts with less education."

Australia is among the top of the group of nations with serious problem on abortion. It won't be too long before their land will be replenished by the Lord with immigrants if they continue to ignore this problem -- because they will be aborting their own inhabitants into extinction.

Talk about conservation of wildlife (WWF-Australia). But what about HUMAN LIFE? There is no murder more grievous than the killing of a defenseless human being by its own supposed protector within its supposed most secure place that God has placed it in.
