    Post Pew research: Rising numbers of adults living without a spouse or partner (39% of Men aged between 25-54)

    Link: Rising Share of U.S. Adults Are Living Without a Spouse or Partner | Pew Research Center


    As relationships, living arrangements and family life continue to evolve for American adults, a rising share are not living with a romantic partner. A new Pew Research Center analysis of census data finds that in 2019, roughly four-in-ten adults ages 25 to 54 (38%) were unpartnered – that is, neither married nor living with a partner. This share is up sharply from 29% in 1990. Men are now more likely than women to be unpartnered, which wasn’t the case 30 years ago.

    The growth in the single population is driven mainly by the decline in marriage among adults who are at prime working age. At the same time, there has been a rise in the share who are cohabiting, but it hasn’t been enough to offset the drop in marriage – hence the overall decline in partnership. While the unpartnered population includes some adults who were previously married (those who are separated, divorced or widowed), all of the growth in the unpartnered population since 1990 has come from a rise in the number who have never been married.


    The growth in unpartnered adults has been sharper among men than women. In 1990, men and women ages 25 to 54 were equally likely to be unpartnered (29% of each group). By 2019, 39% of men were unpartnered, compared with 36% of women.


    Some may assume that, as the median age of first marriage continues to rise, unpartnered adults are merely lagging behind rather than foregoing partnership altogether. That might not be the case. Among adults ages 40 to 54, there has been a significant increase in the share who are unpartnered from 1990 (24%) to now (31% in 2019).


    Study also goes to show the economic disparities between partnered and unpartnered, and shows that unpartnered men tend to show poorer economic outcomes compared to partnered men (not really a surprise when they include divorced men in the unpartnered category).

    Free as bird, fuck the cage, or should I say IRON MADEN?

    Being single is just one more hook monolithia doesn't have in me!

    You're not marrying a woman, you're marrying systematic tyranny flown in on the wings of the state!

    When a man gets married, he goes from man to boy in a reverse obtuse molestation of law that makes him a newborn child of an abusive parent AKA the state. He becomes property of the state.

    That's a big jump in just a few decades.

    Here's a Pew study that breaks down the singles further. The most interesting stat (for me) is that, among people who are single (that is, unmarried, not cohabiting, and not in a committed relationship), half are still interested in dating and relating, and half are not. It varies by age and gender, but overall, half of singles are not interested in dating or getting into a relationship. They cite "having more important priorities and enjoying being single as the top reasons why they are not looking to date." That's me.
