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.
