That's not going to work. That is definitely part of the problem, but another part is women are sick of being exploited for free labor and being treated like things to be used. The failure of most men to do their fair share of labor in a household and/or the habit of men making ridiculous demands (sexual or otherwise), has made a lot of women give up on dating let alone marrying.

This is going to get worse. And really it's not a bad thing. the planet can't replenish resources as fast as we are using them up.
