Singles now outnumber married Americans

On the radio today Klinenberg discussed this trend, and said that it is positive, since living alone can be a time to recharge and find who we are. As woman living alone, I do recharge in my tiny studio in Berkeley. Yet, I am not sure that living alone in the same studio will be as rejuvenating thirty years from now, when it will be harder to negotiate its steep steps and minuscule entrance. On a larger scale, are American social policies ready to serve an increasing number of older unmarried Americans?
