Is corporate America too busy for love?
According to recent studies, Americans are marrying later. In fact, as of 2014, single people (including divorced singles, of course) in the United States outnumber the married,1 meaning that if you are currently single, you’re in good company! One reason for this could be that the demands of modern life don’t leave much time to look for love: with the typical US work week now at 47 hours or more,2 singles who want to get a toe on the professional ladder are finding their leisure time is at a premium. Of course, just because increasing numbers of men and women are finding themselves single, it doesn’t mean that they wish to stay that way.
Indeed, many are finding that the best solution to the work/life dilemma is to seek a compromise: it’s not about trying to ignore the desire for love, instead it is a matter of getting smarter about finding it.
