Is Marriage Becoming Obsolete?

I was not surprised when I read in Kate Bolick’s The Atlantic magazine cover story, "What, Me Marry?" that a smaller proportion of American women in their early 30s are married than at any other point since the 1950s, if not earlier. I recently created a feature-length documentary about single women in their 30s and knew this to be the case. However, I was surprised to read that a whopping 44 percent of Millennials and 43 percent of Gen Xers think marriage is becoming obsolete (Pew Research Center). That got us wondering here at 614: what does this mean for Jewish women? We decided to find out.
