While people are still getting married now compared to the year 1980 the rate has dropped by half and it will drop even harder in the years to come as predicted with the current trend.
Which is charts show will take a toll on the birth rate. More being made now babies now then there will be in the future.
This is all just rates though not numbers meaning there will be lesser on both in the future the numbers would depend on the population.
Here is another chart that shows predicted population considering birth rate and death rate.
Scratch those last two charts I like this one better.

Could we say that all these charts are tied together? Does marriage rate affect the population?
You always have to be careful concerning graphs and figures. I never trust them...
You do not know where they got their information from, how many people they interview, when the study was undertaken, how many people have not reported their marrige to the relevant institution and so on...
All these graphs look a bit to "perfect" to me.
I somewhat doubt the marrige rate is going down, it is more likely the divorce rate is probably going up...
Again I am not exactly sure how the data was obtained although I do not doubt that University of Virginia would have insufficient data on this.
