In 1970, 69 percent of 25-year-old white men were married. By 2000, it was 33 percent. The remainder don't have wives, kids, homes -- in the sense of mow-the-lawn wash-the-car paint-the-spare-bedroom homes. So what do they do? Well, they drink, they listen to music, they hook up, they lead teenage lives on an adult salary.
Males 18 to 34 years old play more video games than kids: according a a 2006 Nielsen survey, 48.2 percent of men in that demographic amused themselves in that way for an average of two hours and forty-three minutes every day -- that's thirteen minutes longer than the 12 - to 17-year-olds.
