There are many reasons why the marriage rate has dropped drastically in the United States, and one may be the student-loan debt. A person who has graduated from a private university and borrowed money to pay his or her tuition could owe as much as $200,000. After graduating many cannot get a job and have no choice but to move back home (if their parents will let them).

Many couples chose to live together with no plans to get married. They feel they should wait until they are financially stable to get married and have children. A recent Pew poll found that 39 percent of Americans feel that marriage is obsolete. A sad commentary on marriage.
