Mate Selection Among Female Academic Workers and Female University Students

Auther : Abdelmoneim Shehatta

The purpose of this study was to discover the differences between female academic workers and their female students in traits desired in a mate. The study was based on analysis of data collected from 78 single female academic workers, aged 25-40 years, and 120 single female university students, aged 19-21 years. Respondents were asked to rate (a) 30 traits of desired husbands, and (b) seven items about length of engagements, failure of engagements, and reasons that men do not want to marry academic workers.The main findings indicate that: (1) Female students have a higher engagement rate than female academic workers. (2) Female academic workers attributed the failure of their engagements to their ambition, intelligence and rigidity, while female students attributed it to economic factors and the opinion of their families. (3) The image of a desired husband among female students was: gentleman and a genius, while among academic workers it was a man with a high income. The findings were consistent with those of previous studies.

Key Words: Mate selection, Female university students, Female academic workers, Mate availability.
