More Californians Unmarried for first time in 50 Years…

In a recent San Jose Mercury News Article, recent statistics have shown that more people are unmarried then married for the first time in 50 years. In the 2000 Census, about 52 percent of Californians 15 or older were married. However, in the 2006 population data released today by the U.S. Census Bureau says that share of married Californians is shrinking to less than 49%.

Fremont Divorce Lawyers such as those at Sagarialaw, P.C., attribute this decline to the fears of divorce, the growing number of females in the workforce and just a general decline the willingness to get married.

The statics are clear that California is amoung the leaders in the county in on this topic. Californians are waiting longer than ever – and longer than people in many other states – to get married, or they’re just skipping it altogether. About three in 10 women in California have never married, a percentage topped by only three other states, according to the new census data. An even higher percentage of men – 38 percent – have never married.

One thing that hasn’t changed this decade in California was divorce – virtually the same proportion of adults – about one in 10 – were divorced in 2006 as in 2000. Divorce statistics unfortunately continue to be about 40 to 50 percent nation wide. These firgures undoubtedly have a negative impact on people’s willingness to get a divorce.
