By James.B

They say Rome wasn't built in a day, but you can do something to help rebuild marriage in just one week!

It's almost become a cliché to say that marriage is under attack in America. But the trends and statistics are undeniable. Here are some data points:

Marriage rates: In 1970, eighty percent of all adults were married; today it's only 52 percent. In 1960, the median age for a first marriage was 20 for women and 23 for men. Today it's 27 for women and 29 for men.

Millennials: A full 25 percent of Millennials are likely to forego marriage altogether. One report says that a record share of Millennials will remain unmarried through age 40.
