In a reversal of a long-term trend , young adults with college degrees are now more likely to be married than those who receive less formal education:

About 62 percent of college-educated 30-year-olds were married or had been married, compared with 60 percent of those without a bachelor’s degree, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data. That is a significant shift from the 1990s, when young adults who didn’t finish college were more likely to have wed than their better-educated counterparts, 75 percent to 69 percent.
