dc.description.abstractContext: As divorce continues to rise as Ireland’s fastest growing marital status, views towards marriage seem to be altered among young adults in Irish society today. The aim of the research is to investigate attitudes towards marriage and intentions to marry amongst young adults. METHODS: Quantitative analysis was the chosen method for this research. 200 participants were used within the analysis, 100 females and 100 males. The participant’s age ranged from 19-33 years. RESULTS: The analysis revealed that the female sample has strong intentions to marry someday compared to the male sample. Females also wanted to get married before males. The analysis also revealed that young adults with divorced or separated parents do not have a negative attitude towards marriage. CONCLUSION: Both males and females revealed they intended to marry someday, however, the intention in females was significantly stronger. Attitudes towards marriage varied slightly amongst both samples.en
