Reports shows fewer people in the U.S. getting hitched

The Pew Research Center says marriage in this country has hit a record low. 

Just 51percent of U.S. adults are married. That's down five percent from 2009, and well below the 1960 figure of 72 percent.

Couples are also waiting until they're older to get hitched. In the past 50 years, the ages of first-time couple have increased.

On average, women are waiting until they are 26-years-old and men are holding out until they are almost 29.

If the trend continues, single people will likely be in the majority in just a few years.
