Guys who want to make more money should get married.

The Pew Research Center analyzed census data and found that since 1970, median household income rose 60 percent for married men and only 16 percent for unmarried men.

A larger share of today's men are married to women whose education and income exceed their own. The economic downturn has reinforced this new trend with more men losing their jobs than women.
