The data revealed that 78 % of women said they will consider a partner who had a steady job.

The report stated that if all never-married young women in 2012 wanted to find a young employed man who had also never been married, 9 % of them would fail, simply because there were not enough men in the target group.

According to Pew one in four unmarried adults under age 35 right now may still be single well into their 50s.
