Nearly half of US adults aren't married, a record low

Scenes like this are becoming fewer and far between here in the U.S. The Pew Research Center says marriage in this country has hit a record low. 

Analysts looked at Census Bureau data from 2010 and found just barely over half of U.S. adults were married.

That's down five percent from 2009.

The data shows both men and women are also waiting until they're older to get hitched.

On average, women are waiting until they are 26-years-old and men are holding out until they are almost 29.

Analysts say if the trend continues, single people will likely be in the majority in just a few years.
