Someday the Number of Women Getting Married Could Hit Zero

More women are deciding their path to happily-ever-after isn't down the aisle.
In 1970, 60 percent of women between the ages of 20 and 24 were married, and 90 percent of women were married by the time they were 29. In 2010, it droppedto 20 percent married by 24, and 50 percent by age 29. One sociologist says that at the current rate of decline, the percentage getting married will hit zero at around 2042.

% of women getting married...
Which 4th grader did the math on this one? A 40 % drop over 40 yrs = 1%/yr. So in 50 yrs (2063) no women will be getting married. Interesting, seeing as now that same-sex marriages are all the rage (and legal) women will be getting married at TWICE the rate, so the time line should be out even farther (like the yr 2097)
