51% of Women Are Now Living Without Spouse….

… according to a New York Times analysis of census results. Several factor were seen driving the statistical shift. “At one end of the age spectrum, women are marrying later or living with unmarried partners more often and for longer periods. At the other end, women are living longer as widows and, after a divorce, are more likely than men to delay remarriage, sometimes delighting in their newfound freedom.”

What I found particularly interesting was that according to the Census report, only about 30 percent of black women are living with a spouse, compared with about 49 percent of Hispanic women, 55 percent of non-Hispanic white women and more than 60 percent of Asian women.What does that say about Asian women?

Are we nearing the tipping point?
