Expectations for many white American’s include going to College, buying a home and having a family. This goal is getting harder to realize. Social dating trends such as uncommitted relationships where partners don’t want responsibility is part but the more threatening reasons is the lack of stability due to housing and private debt crisis.

Student Loans are a major source of private debt which is a deterrence for marriage. Before taking out a student loan calculate the realistic rate of return on investment. Include in your calculation the average pay for your employment position you expect to have and the likelihood you will be employed in that position.

Housing Crisis is forcing many young people to live with their parents or young girls to shack up with older men if their parents don’t want to do the right thing by providing them support with human dignity until marriage. This obligates women of child bearing years to men who are not the best fit for having children and the younger men to loose their chances as well.

In minority housing community such as Detroit housing is affordable but people who are not in a defensive position such as a member of a large family or gang your house can be seized by a gang and you loose your investment. If you are lucky enough to get into public housing there are limits to income potential which deters women from marrying men who have potential income ability and determination for self betterment. And you also risk the chance of being constantly harassment by the white supremacist in police departments and the Child Protection teams who take federal funding to force segregation between blacks and whites through harassment and seizures of children throughout the nation.

Although there are laws against housing discrimination these laws only protect the homeowner or renter from lenders or the landlord but not from neighborhood gangs or police or social service agencies who take it upon themselves to interfere with people’s living environment to illegally seize their property or chase them out of town. Therefore Housing Laws and affordable housing needs to be address by the Federal Government and they should stop the federal funding of agencies aimed at segregation.

Segregation also reduces the chance of women having the chance to get married and have children because we know by statistics that some cultures and religions ( Catholics, Muslims and Orthodox ) offer an ideology which provides and protects the family above government and individualism and therefore are more successful at creating offspring.

These some of the serious issues which has frustrated women and men alike who wanted to build a family and has contributed if not cause what is called the Sub-replacement fertility is a total fertility rate (TFR) that (if sustained) leads to each new generation being less populous than the older, previous one in a given area. Indeveloped countries sub-replacement fertility is any rate below approximately 2.1 children born per woman, but the threshold can be as high as 3.4 in some developing countries because of higher mortality rates.[1] Taken globally, the total fertility rate at replacement was 2.33 children per woman in 2003.[1] This can be "translated" as 2 children per woman to replace the parents, plus a "third of a child" to make up for the higher probability of boys being born and early mortality prior to the end of their fertile life.[2]

Modern Politics and Demographers in the West have decided to replace the dwindling population with immigrants rather then supporting many girls dreams to have children and build a family. This is a demoralizing heartbreak mostly aimed at the European American community and their expectations of segregation and higher education and feminism which challenges the nature of mothers and destroys the expectations of men to be the protectors and the providers.

Replacement Migration: 
Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?
United Nations projections indicate that over the next 50 years, the populations of virtually all countries of Europe as well as Japan will face population decline and population ageing. The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many established policies and programmes, including those relating to international migration.
Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.

In future, therefore, the girls born in this year would have to have more than two children each to replace the total population.
