Marriage Continues to Decline
National Public Radio reports on a new Pew Research Center report that just 51 percent of American adults are married. Fifty, nearly 60 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds were married. Today, it’s just 20 percent. The change is only partly explained by the fact that many people are waiting to get married longer.
