According to a new Pew Research study, in 1960, 72 percent had tied the knot and a fifth of adults 25 and older have never walked down the aisle, Fox News reported.
Jamie Miles, editor at TheKnot.com, said that it's insane the disparity between the 1960s and today, where more and more couples are comfortable not getting married and are waiting to get married older, they're saving up more money. And they're making sure they have a stable career.
Government figures also show that about half of all unmarried Americans 18 and up live with a partner. Some couples said living together could be one reason fewer people are marrying.
