The family form is changing; the rate of marriage among young people in the United States is decreasing, with many people delaying marriage, or simply not marrying. Wendy Manning will examine the trends and patterns of cohabitation among young people, aged 18 to 29, and what impact these trends have on their psychological and economic health.

Manning currently serves as Director of the Center for Family and Demographic Research and Co-Director for the National Center for Family & Marriage Research. She is a family demographer, and her research examines how family members define and understand their obligations to each other in an era of increasingly diverse and complex family relationships.
