From The Grio

A new Gallup Poll has found that non-white young adults in the United States are less likely to be married but are more likely to want to get married than white young adults.

Overall, 28 percent of the 18-to-34-year-old people polled were married.  Thirty-four percent of the white young adults who were polled are currently married, but only 20 percent of the non-white young adults are married.

In the young adult age group, 56 percent overall report they have never married and want to get married.

Sixty-one percent of non-whites say that they have never been married but want to get married, while only 53 percent of whites.

The non-white young adult group does have a higher percentage of people who want to get married, but the group also has a higher percentage of people who have never married and do not want to get married.
