I think we all already suspected this, but now research has delivered numbers showing that just 20% people between the ages of 18-34 are married and they aren’t overly concerned with walking down the aisle.

Does it seem as though members of the Gen Y population are not marrying at the rate of their predecessors? It’s not your imagination. A survey conducted by the Pew Research Center indicates that just 20% of of this generation, ages 18-34, are married.
