Is Marriage Holding Women Back? Why Being Single Better Prepares You For The Future
Get all thoughts about needing a ring on it out of your head; singlehood is the future.
According to the 2017 United Nations World Marriage Data, the number of women aged 30-34 who are married in the UK dropped from 89% to 71% between 1971 and 2011*.
And, considering that the amount of single, never married people in the UK increased by 3.9 million between 2002 and 2017, there's a very good chance that the number of married 30-34-year-olds has dropped even further since then.
All of which means a huge change to how society will look and behave over the coming years. Soon, 'trends' like solo travel won't be just a trend any more, they'll be the way forward. As more companies wake up to the growing number of single consumers with money to spend, the world, which currently feels geared towards couples, will begin to look like a very different place indeed.
