According to the Pew Research center, Americans are marrying later in life, and a bigger percentage have never been married. Some notable stats are below:
- 1 in 5 Americans over 25 have never married. Back in the 60’s that number was just 1 in 10.
- The average age of getting married is 27 for women, and 29 for men.
- 1 in 4 people between the age of 25 – 34 live with a partner.
Despite this, the poll that was taken also shows that a majority (almost 70%) of Americans continue to believe that marriage is the right choice for 2 people who plan to spend their lives together. So the ultimate love story is alive and well; it’s just not happening as frequently as it once did.
I blame this largely on the crazy, fast pace of the modern world. One thing that has countered this trend has been online dating sites like Eharmony. In this day and age, Eharmony seems almost old-fashioned with its focus on marriages and finding the love of your life. But in today’s cynical world, this idealistic take on love is also refreshing.
For this reason alone, I would encourage just about everyone to give Eharmony a try at some point in their lives. Nowadays, it’s easier than ever to join. In fact, there is even an Eharmony free trial that allows you to set up an account and receive matches for free. Click here to try out Eharmony for free.
The site is best suited for people who are mature and ready to find their life partner. Based on statistics, this would most likely be people in their mid to late twenties. On the other hand, it’s never too late for love, and you should join the site at any age if you are feeling it is the right time for you.
