New Strategist Press editorial director Cheryl Russell reports on a Department of Labor report called "Labor Market Activity, Education, and Partner Status among Young Adults at 29: Results from a Longitudinal Survey," which exposes one of current society's predicaments: the delay among young adults to partner up.

Cohabiting: 20%
Married: 45%
