Even though single adults comprise almost half of the U.S. population, many churches have neglected to accommodate single adults, especially singles ages 35 and up. Are churches funded mainly by members who are married?
“America’s 89.6 million singles head just over half (50.3%) of all American households, according to the 2006 census,” as read on page 85, “Quitting Church, Why the Faithful are Leaving and What to do About It,” by Julia Duin.
There are about"92 million single Americans across the country...Singles Americans now comprise 42% of the population over the age of 18...The number of households that are headed by single men or single women has reached 50.7 million. This translates into 44% of all U.S. households being maintained by single individuals."
