Study shows 'singlehood' gaining in acceptability

Americans who once viewed marriage as the only acceptable way of life have changed their opinion during the past 20 years, a study shows.

Social scientists at the University of Michigan said findings of their research suggest young singles in America no longer will be pressured by their parents into marriage. They said that marks a shift over the last 20 years in the way singlehood has been perceived in America. There also is a widespread desire not to permit marriage to interfere with education and work plans, the report said.
