Why Aren’t People Getting Married?

A new study shows that American adults are married at a rate of 51% today versus 72% in 1960. Here is a list of possible reasons why.

Television

Marriage from the outside looks terrible. Look what Kim Kardashian just did to Kris Humphries. Why would anybody want to be a part of that?

Adult Relations

In 1960 I truly believe people got married so they could “stir the coffee“. In 2011 (almost 2012) people don't need to do that. People today go out to night clubs to find a mate for the night, not for life.

Divorce

A lot of people think it's not worth getting married because you're just going to get divorced anyway. You can have all the adult relations of a marriage without the hassle. Plus, the woman takes the man to cleaners when its all over.

Marriage Champions

Every person that comes out championing marriage comes off corny. This guy is not the guy to push an agenda.

Brainwashing

I am not married because I have been brainwashed that I have to have ALL of affairs in order; from school, to career, home ownerships, etc, BEFORE I get married. If society didn't discourage people they may consider getting married.
