The Never Married Single Adult
#1
In our country and I'm sure it's not different in any country, the never married single adult makes up the majority of the single adult population. This is most likely because many singles 18 years and over are still in school and are just entering the workforce. However, these 18-25 year-olds must be included in the adult population because some are married.

Many never married adults are waiting longer to marry because:

1. A significant demographic shift. Today there are simply not enough single men to allow every single woman to marry. War is one of the culprits.

2. Call to ministry. Within the church there are single adults who sense a call to some area of ministry.

3. The growing number of career women.

4. Personal freedom with no accountability. Another reasons many adults have postponed marriage is an unprecedented craving for personal freedom.

5. Unrealistic expectations. Many single adults say they are still single because they cannot find the right partner.

6. Lack of commitment. Marriage requires self-sacrifice. Many are more interested in other things.

7. The Peter Pan syndrome. a syndrome that is narcissistic, adolescent-like attitude which primarily afflicts educated urban unmarried adults who refuse to face the psychological and financial demands of growing up (by Dr. Dan Keiley)

8. Lax sexual standards
