Recent research suggests that those numbers are quite low, with the majority of us wanting to play the field and “test the water” a little, before putting a ring on it and settling down.
The study, done by Future Foundation for The Co-operative, found that almost one in three couples over 60 has been smoochin’ since their teens, whilst only one in seven of the 26-30 year-olds interviewed for this study met their partner in their teenage years — suggesting that the majority of us are in fact waiting and dating and playing the field a bit longer.
Bothered? Not really. The point we're choosing to take from the study is this: Don’t worry if you haven't found the Mr or Mrs Right yet. Who needs diamond-wedding-anniversary gifts anyway? (Metro)
