That educational reversal will probably continue for a long time. For some years now, most college degrees in the USA have been earned by women. Many women will have no choice but to "marry down" educationally.

It wouldn't surprise me if the average age difference in new marriages is widening in recent years. Perhaps there is now less stigma to non-traditional age disparity? And people are now marrying later when there are fewer practical limitations on wider age differences. Would be interesting to read about if someone had done a study.
