Marriage rates at their lowest in almost 100 years.

Half of Americans 18 and older were married in 2015, according to a Pew Research Center report. That's down from 72% in 1960. The study also found Americans are staying single longer, with the average age of women getting married for the first time at 27-point-four.

For men it's nearly 30 years old. While marriage rates are declining, there's no slow down in dating. The number of 18 to 24 year olds using online dating sites tripled in the two years from 2013 to 2015.

One statistic that is interesting is 42 million Americans have been married multiple times. That is nearly double the amount from 1980.

Pew Research reports that the last time marriage rates were this low was back in 1920.
