It’s always been the claim that men are afraid of commitment, and now there’s research to back it up. But the research also applies to ladies as well and gives some surprising results.. A new study from the Pew Research Center finds that fewer and fewer adults are actually getting married these days.

The number of married couples has declined by more than 20 percent since 1960. What’s more, 40 percent of survey respondents now say marriage is “obsolete.”

The report also reveals that marriage is happening later in life. Men getting married these days are the average age of 29 when they tie the knot. The average age of women marrying for the first time has also risen — half are 27 or older.
