Is marriage passe'..? [View all]

Interesting article points out and discusses the declining rate of marriage in the USA.

"Why is the US marriage rate falling sharply?
For the first time in memory, unmarried Americans will soon outnumber those who are married, according to the latest research. So is this a watershed moment?
n 1960, 72% of all American adults were married; in 2010 just 51% were, according to the Pew Research Center. The number dropped sharply by 5% in the most recent year, 2009-10".
