In fact, we highly recommend that you keep all communication with your matches on until you feel confident that it’s the right time to exchange a phone number or email address, or even go on a date.
There’s something about Canadians that makes us irresistible to the world.
Whether it’s our clichéd ‘eh’ or our love of beating our American neighbours at hockey at every possible opportunity, Canada is envied all over the world.
Over the last century, marriage rates have fluctuated and often corresponded with historical events.
During the Great Depression the rate fell, presumably related to high unemployment and negative economic conditions.
In 1950, the average age for first marriage for men was 28.5 years and for women was 25.9 years.
In 2000, the census indicated a slight rise in the marriage rate, five for every 1,000 people, which was attributed to couples choosing to marry at the start of the new millennium.
After the millennium the marriage rate fell to 4.7 marriages per 1,000 people (compared to 10.9 in the 1940s), continuing the trend of a declining rate.
Since the 1960s, marriage in Canada has undergone profound changes.
The baby-boom period (1946 to 1965) was a time when couples married relatively young and by current standards had large families.
