For the first time since the data started being tracked in 1976, there are more unmarried adults in the U.S. than there are married. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 50.2 percent of the 16-and-over U.S. population is single. That's a majority -- for the very first time.

The percentage of singles has been just under the 50-percent mark since 2013, but data shows that it finally got over the 50-percent hump this year. Back in 1976, not being married meant you were part of the minority, with only 37.4 percent of adults being single.

What do you think of the fact that being single is actually more popular than being married right now? And which group do you belong to? Are you single or taken?

    Meaning happily married.
    3rd marriage, in fact. My first two wives died from cancer related to DES syndrome.
    Despite tragedy, the happiest periods of my life were my married years.

    I am "taken" and loving it. I met my girl well over 40 years ago and rapidly became inseparable.
    I can't imagine a day that I don't share with her. Or waking up alone in the morning.
    Most things we do as a team. Us. Together.
    I was on a 14 day bike ride and my wife was volunteering.
    At the end of the day as I came into the campsite there, on the other side of the oval, she was. The rest of the world disappeared and the heart lifted. The joy of being back together again was something hard to explain.
    i feel sorry for all those who miss out on this experience.
    PS we are "johnny come latelies" we visited our friends a couple of days ago and they have been married for 61 years.

    I find the statistics of divorce and the overwhelming amount of women who cheat and file divorce (70%) sickening. I work in a predominantly female field and I listen to how women speak of their boyfriends husbands and how much they really matter to them and I've realised there is no good reason for any man to marry one. If she cheats the man loses if he cheats he loses. They take his children and his money and then do nothing but drag them through the mud. I meet many successful men who have opened their eyes and agree that legally binding yourself in today's legal system Isent just a bad idea. It's outright idiotic

    I haven't been anything else yet, but that's OK. I'm like wine; the longer I sit on the shelf, the better I please!

    Well, hopefully.
