Fewer Canadians than ever are getting married

The numbers are in and they say fewer Canadians than ever are getting married.

New polling data from Angus Reid shows that in 2016, just 22 percent of Canadians age 18-34 were married. That’s compared to 56 percent of people in that age group back in 1976.

The reason?

53 percent of Canadians said that marriage isn’t necessary, with more young people than old agreeing with that idea. Sounds about right…

Also, two thirds said that society is just as well off if people have priorities other than marriage and kids.
