The term "marriage strike" refers to young men in Western countries deciding to not get married, due to high divorce rates (50% in the U.S., and as high as 75% in California, which is not included in the U.S. average). A perception that marriage is a financial disaster for men, especially during divorce settlements, is generally believed to be driving the marriage strike phenomenon.
