Abstract

Never-married men and women (N = 406) completed measures of self-consciousness, attitudes toward women, and the desire to marry. Women expressed a greater desire to marry than did men. More conservative, White, and more anxious women were more motivated to marry, and to use names and titles that indicated marital status.
