CWN Editor's Note: “Even so, fewer Americans are married today to reap the many benefits associated with marriage,” cautions Wendy Wang, director of research at the Institute for Family Studies. “The US marriage rate just hit an all-time low in 2019. For every 1,000 unmarried adults in 2019, only 33 got married. This number was 35 a decade ago in 2010 and 86 in 1970.”
