Are You “Single And Loving It”?

Single and loving it. I’ve met several people the past few weeks who are “unattached.” The common line heard is “longer I’m single, the easier it gets.”

Nearly 100-million Americans are being recognized with “Unmarried and Single Americans Week.” Just over 60-percent of the single adults in the U.S. have never been married, while nearly 24-percent are divorced and just over 14-percent are widowed. Roughly 16-percent of the singles are 65 or older. Single women outnumber the unmarried men, with 88 single guys for every 100 unmarried women. Forty-five-percent of the households in America are run by single people, and 27-percent of unmarried Americans live alone. More than a third of the single females between the ages of 15 and 50 have had a child over the past 12 months.

Meanwhile, a third of single adults are the primary caregivers for their grandchildren. Most unmarried adults have at least finished high school, while a quarter of American singles over the age of 25 have at least a bachelor’s degree. In addition, 38-percent of those who voted in the 2008 presidential election were single.
