Overall: Some key demographic dimensions of each group are shown in the table below: In general, those with college degrees and higher levels of household income are significantly more likely to be married than those with high school diplomas and those living in households with more modest levels of income.

African-Americans and English-speaking Hispanics are more likely than whites never to have married.

Perhaps more surprisingly, single men said they had been less active daters than single women. Despite the challenges of finding a mate, a majority of American adults have found marriage partners or long-term relationships.

And two-thirds (68%) of those in marriages or in households living as married said they had been in those relationships for longer than five years.
