One of the most common biases in interviewing and hiring is that single people like to work more, and don't mind traveling. Married people work less, and like to stay in town.

Even if this was at one time true, is it still? Doubtful.

Hire the people who will like their jobs, fit your corporate culture, work hard, and like to try new ideas, even if they sometimes fail.

These people will end up working the long hours and flying to New York when you need them to—not necessarily the single ones.
