Women Should Do These Things Their Selves At Least Once

Taking care of the car, the yard and the taxes were new to her. She craved a vacation, but the thought of traveling alone scared the bleep out of her.

Slide 2 of 22: Marriage rates are at an all-time low. The percentage of 18-to-64-year-olds that are legally joined hit a record low of 48.6 percent in 2016, according to the most recent Census Bureau data. If we were all really so happy being in this elusive couple, then why are we choosing single life? And yes, people can be committed and enjoy many of the benefits of marriage without legally tying the knot, but without a formal marriage certificate, you are more likely to split than with one. In short: Because people can afford to live alone, and women now can mostly choose whether or not to marry, and can afford to live alone if we choose — that is exactly what we're doing.We increasingly choose to live alone. In fact, the percentage of Americans aged 18 and over living alone has risen over the last few decades, from 7.6 percent in 1967 to 14.3 percent in 2017. This is a sign of a strong economy — historically, tough financial times forced more people into cohabitation in various configurations — and changing social norms (e.g. women are no longer social pariahs if we don't live with a male protector).As the economy increasingly improves overall (not just employment rates and GDP,  but women's ability to be self-sufficient), Americans chose larger and larger living spaces (while home square-footage has leveled off, family size continues to decrease, so we all have more room to ourselves in our giant houses and apartments). In other words: We prefer less togetherness.
