Humans have a propensity to form relationships whether temporary or permanent (or as long lasting as can be). Data gleaned from the UN’s Demographic Yearbooks on 97 societies from 1947 onwards, showed that 93.1% of women and 91.8% of men marry by the age of 49. In the U.S., 85% of the population is destined to marry. In plain numbers that figure is about 2,118,000 annually. Divorce rates are down too. Statistics for couples who married in the ‘60s and ‘70s showed divorce rates at a staggering 47%, however, that has changed. The rate of divorce per year has been declining since 1980 and is now at 3.6 per 1,000 people.
