Americans may be postponing marriage, and fewer are wedding at all. But what about the people who do get married? They’re staying together longer than they have in years.

Three in four couples who married after 1990 celebrated a 10-year anniversary, according to census statistics reported Wednesday. That was a rise of 3 percentage points compared with couples who married in the early 1980s, when the nation’s divorce rate was at its highest.

NOTE: Everyone I have performed the wedding vows for is still married. Same record exists for funerals. No returns.
