Marriage And Staying Single

May 05, 2022

Financial Connections offers services to single people and unmarried couples. We have written previously and given webinars on planning for these communities.

USA Facts offered some recent insights based on the Census Bureau numbers. We thought it would be interesting to share.

  • Last year 47.3% of households were married compared to 78% in 1949
  • Last year 11% of the households were singles compared to 3.8% in 1960

Couples are delaying marriage. In 2019, men married at just over 30 and women over 28. This compares to just over 22 for men and 20 for women in 1956.

Three out of 10 women have never married as of 2021.

For the first time, same-sex marriage was tabulated as part of the 2020 census. Unfortunately, that information hasn’t been published.
