Have you noticed how many single women there are? Believe it or not, for the first time in U.S. history, single adult women outnumber married women. That's right. Singleness is now the new norm for adult women. Marriage for women is the exception rather than the rule.
There are probably a lot of reasons for this paradigm shift. Today women do not need husbands to support them financially. Worlds of women are educated, sophisticated, professional, and independent, fully able to make a living for themselves.
So women are marrying later, and giving up on marriage sooner. Two-thirds of all divorces are initiated by women.
But there are still needs women have that can only be met through covenant relationships: the needs for closeness, intimacy, emotional validation, and security. According to the experts, single women can be happy without a man, but married women tend to be happier than single women.
