Have Sexual Harassment Policies Affected the Marriage Market?
By Bryan Caplan
Have sexual harassment laws (and their stricter enforcement) noticeably reduced the probability of co-workers marrying? Have they noticeably reduced the probability of people getting married at all?
If the workplace is one of the main places where people meet, it’s not hard to believe that discouraging workplace dating could have substantial effects on the marriage market. But I can’t recall hearing about any evidence either way. Anyone?
