How are relationships doing in America? What do people Want? what do couples lack? Are couples happy together or not? This article will reveal some interesting trends in relationships.
Anyone who’s been single in the last few years knows that the singles scene has become a much more complicated place than it was in the past. Along with the hard-won victories women have claimed in the fight for gender equality and equal rights have come new questions about our role in the dating game.
The traditional dynamic, which casts the male partner (in heterosexual relationships) or the partner with a more masculine gender expression (in same-sex relationships) in the role of pursuer or aggressor is now pretty much outdated because the notion that a woman’s place is in the home is no longer the case, not even an idea.
The number of American singles continues to rise year over year with more unmarried folks in America than ever before. Research shows that millennial women (roughly 18 to 33 years old) are more educated and less interested in marriage than in previous generations. According to the Pew Research Center, “About seven in 10 millennials (68 percent) have never been married, and those who are married have put marriage off until their later adult years. In 1963, the typical American woman married at 21 years of age and the typical man wed at 23.”
Breaking Up Will Be Easier to Do in Social Media
The truth is social media adds an awkward and unfortunate layer to a breakup. You have to figure out if you should unfollow, untag, hide, or block your ex and you may drive yourself crazy seeing pictures of him or her loving life in your news feed. To address this, Facebook rolled out a new breakup tool last year that makes moving on a little easier. The network now allows users to change their relationship status privately and prompts them to unfollow and untag, so that they don’t have to worry about managing their digital profile while moving on.
According research, approximately 25 percent of married women out-earn their male partners—up from four percent in the 1960s. Researchers see this trend growing even more in the coming years. “If you and your partner have widely disparate incomes, it’s tough to feel like financial equals,” “It’s easy to feel like the person earning more wields more financial ‘power.‘”
So how do you level the emotional playing field when the financial one isn’t balanced? “Make sure to give each person’s money meaning—especially the person earning less,” physiologists say. “For example, the person with the smaller paycheck can save for long-term goals in the relationship, like as a down payment on a home or your next big vacation. It will feel like a major contribution and can be a source of financial pride.”
Chances are that you or someone you know has had a fertility treatment or has considered one for the future. The face of motherhood is changing as many first time moms are older and better educated than ever before. Millions of women undergoing treatment will have to navigate who to tell (do you mention it to a date or employer?) and will discover how
Date night doesn’t get any more depressing this: A lady was so caught up in her smartphone, recently that she didn’t realize the date was over.
“She had a serious problem with her phone and finally realized it at dinner with her date” the Easton “The client was so She was so engrossed in her screen that when she finally looked up, he had already paid the bill and was headed for the door.”
The woman was hardcore phubbing ― ignoring her S.O. and paying attention to her phone. Phubbing, a word that combines phone and snubbing, is becoming increasingly common in our social interactions, especially in romantic relationships, and it’s really breaking down the communication in dates, couples and even marriages.
In a recent University study of 143 people in romantic relationships, 70 percent said that cell phones “sometimes,” “often,” “very often” or “all the time” interfered in their interactions with their partners.
In a follow-up survey of 145 adults, 22.6 percent said that phubbing had caused conflict in their relationships and 36.6 percent reported feeling depressed at times because they felt like their partner was putting their phone above them.
Today Many couples are often craving meaningful connection with each other, but their phones have overwhelmed their lives,” she said. “They often tell me that
