SO, I log onto e Harmony yesterday and it completely depressed me.
So for all your single people who aren't in their 20s, what's your analysis of the dating scene??
During the Great Depression the rate fell, presumably related to high unemployment and negative economic conditions.
During and following the Second World War there were fewer single men, which lowered the number of marrying couples.
However, following the war, couples were reunited and the marriage rate rose.
Since the 1960s, marriage in Canada has undergone profound changes.
