Topic: The charts give information about USA marriage and divorce rates between 1970 and 2000 and the marital status of adult Americans in two of the years. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

The charts reveal the comparison between the marriages and divorces in the USA from 1970 to 2000, and the proportion of adult Americans in different marital status in two of the years.

With regards to the statistic of marriages and divorces, it was remarkable that marriages were more dominant than divorces. In 1970, there were 2.5 million couples who got married while 1 million couples divorced. In the next four decades, the marriages had a slight decline to end up with 2 million in each period from 1980 to 2000. Meanwhile, the divorces hit a peak in 1980 with roughly 1.5 million but subsequently diminished to the same number as in 1970 in the next 20 years.

In terms of marital status, the majority of adult Americans got married in 1970 with 70 percent and continued to be at the top of the list in 2000 despite having a light decrease. The same propensity occurred in the number of mature people who became widowed, which had the smallest rate with just 5 percent in 2000. On the contrary, never married and divorced adults increased slightly with roughly 7 percent throughout 3 decades.

It is clear that the majority of mature people in America tended to get married even though the divorced rate climbed over the years.
