Why We're In A Global Love Crisis (& How Marriage Can Save It)
As a dating coach, I'm very worried.
Who will model love for children in a world full of single adults?

These statistics have far-reaching implications for the future of loveFrankly, as a dating coach for women over 40, I'm very worried. Over the last 11 years, I have spoken to thousands of single women who tell me they want nothing to do with men, are happy single, can't find a decent guy, prefer to pursue their career, don't have time to date, can't be bothered, or choose not to date while raising kids as a single mom.

But who will model loving relationships for the next generation?

With so many people staying single, getting divorced, and losing interest in love and marriage, how will children born today and in the future learn about partnership? I shudder to think that kids will have to rely on TV and movies for that education. Entertainment hardly reflects realistic, loving partnerships. Honestly, that makes me so sad because I found love after 40, so I know it can be done.

Plus, young people today are not so hot on marriage. Even those whose parents have solid marriages want to avoid it or put it off. On The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Caroline Manzo's three adult children announced they don't want to marry even though they came from two parents who still love each other after decades together.

According to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, love is number three of the top five human needs after physiological needs such as food, water, and air, and safety. We need love to live a full life. As isolation grows due to technology, living alone, and putting off finding love, how will we ever unify the planet? They say love makes the world go 'round, so please don't give up on it just yet.
