The number of people getting married has fallen to the lowest level since records began in 1862. The figures from the Office for National Statistics showed that the average age for men to marry in 2005 was 36.2 and for women it was 33.6. Among people over 18, barely 50% of all adults are now married. In 1960, 72% of people over the age of 18 were married. Why are less people getting married? How will this decline impact us as a community?
