The Never-Married in Later Life.
Ward, Russell A.
Journal of Gerontology, v34 n6 p861-69 Nov 1979
Consequences of singlehood are analyzed for never-married persons. Highly-educated older women are most likely to remain single. Family background is not a predictor. Although the never-married find life more exciting than other marital statuses among younger respondents, this reverses in later life. Never-marrieds are also less happy than the married. (Author)
