How has the prevalence of dating apps impacted this trend? Finally, consider which theory from earlier reading/s can be applied to this type of dating and explain your choice.

In your discussion, address social factors that may impact these statistics (such as race, sex ratio, etc.) as well as address the perception of marriage in contemporary society.
