Probably for the same reason there are far fewer marriages in which a smoking wife is married to a non-smoking husband (only 6.5%) than there are marriages in which a smoking husband is married to a non-smoking wife (11%).
I’m afraid I don’t really have any evidence that smokers are less likely to marry.
Smoking is obviously something that cannot be hidden for so long in a relationship and if, at the end of the day, non-smokers only wish to date other non-smokers then smokers are likely to have a much worse outcome on the dating market than non-smokers.
A recent study on lying in dating profiles found that the characteristic that people reported being most dishonest about is their smoking habits.
Unlike other qualities that people might be dishonest about, like adding an inch to their height or taking five pounds off their weight, there are real costs to being in a relationship with a smoker (particularly in terms of health), costs that non-smokers can simply avoid by finding themselves a non-smoking partner.
My son told me yesterday that he doesn’t think he will be dating this year since he refuses to date any girl who smokes. I wonder if the group of girls that I see collected outside of his school in the morning having one more smoke before the school day begins realize that because of their habit they are missing out on a real catch. And since here in Paris (where I live at the moment) smoking is so prevalent, these girls may never need to worry that they are limiting their prospects on the dating market just because they started smoking when they were twelve.
Smoking habits do matter on the North American dating market, though, and online daters seem to recognize that.
For example, data collected from recently married couples between 19 found that 92% of non-smoking men and 86% of non-smoking women were married to women/men who also did not smoke.
