En 1986, Newsweek avançait qu’une célibataire de 40 ans risquait plus d’être tuée par un terroriste que de se marier… mais heureusement: «Twenty years later, the situation looks far brighter.

Those odds-she’ll-marry statistics turned out to be too pessimistic: today it appears that about 90 percent of baby-boomer men and women either have married or will marry, a ratio that’s well in line with historical averages.

And the days when half of all women would marry by 20, as they did in 1960, only look more anachronistic. At least 14 percent of women born between 1955 and 1964 married after the age of 30. Today the median age for a first marriage — 25 for women, 27 for men—is higher than ever before.»
