People are still falling in love, but they aren't getting married as young as they used to. According to Business Insider, only 8% of 21-year-olds and 53.3% of 30-year-olds had been married in 2016. In 1962, half of 21-year-olds and 90% of 30-year-olds had been married at least once.

At Louisville Farm Show this year, ag equipment companies will showcase new technology. The show opens Wednesday.

On the northeast side of Columbus, Ohio, a delivery driver pulled up to deliver single red rose to the Ikehorn home Monday morning. Each Monday morning since the couple married almost 30 years ago, Phil has sent his wife, Evelyn, one deep red rose. At age 71, Phil doesn't remember why he came up with the idea. Evelyn, 72, told the Columbus Post-Dispatch, "He knew that I liked roses. I guess having one rose was a symbol of love."
