Single? You're in good company. There are 100 million unmarried adults in America and for the first time ever, the majority of US households are headed by an unmarried person. Find that surprising? The simple explanation is that we marry later, divorce a lot, and live longer. But there's more to it than that. Our lives have become more complex, intense, and demanding. As a result, finding and maintaining a lasting relationship has become even more challenging: The accelerated evolution of women in the latter part of the 20th century has resulted in many more lifestyle choices for both men and women. We live in a youth obsessed, instant gratification, attention deficit world. Our expectations of finding the "perfect" partner and maintaining the "perfect" relationship have never been higher. The game has dramatically changed. Should you have a plan? Through insights from social historians, comedians, singer/songwriters and "real" people, SINGLE - A DOCUMENTARY FILM explores the growth of the unmarried population and the new challenges and complexities of finding a lasting relationship in today's crazy world.
