a PSC In The News reference

"Marriage means faster wage growth for men, but not for women" - PhysOrg.com. 08/18/2014.

Analyzing data on 12,600 working Americans, Siwei Cheng found that marriage is associated with fast wage growth for men, but slow growth for women, with the advantage for men accumulating over time. She says that marriage "operates as a de-equalizing force that drives up the gender wage gap over individuals' lives."
