BSU Professor Says Traditional Dating Has Disappeared

by Sammy Edmonds posted Feb 14 2014 3:46PM
A Ball State researcher says traditional dating has disappeared.  Family Studies Professor Scott Hall says young people today, instead of settling down in their early 20s, will put off marriage for nearly a decade.  U.S. Census data shows the average age for marriage is 28 for men and 26 for women...a jump from the early 1950s when it was 22 for men and 20 for women.
 
Hall says young adults in the Internet era have more options for dating.  He says they’re also focused on building their careers and will live independently for a time before settling down and starting a family.
