Young adult are waiting longer to get married, ergo, thi will obviously result in more never-married adults.
Since Helen is cherry-picking here, I'll add some context from Pew.
But delayed marriage may not explain all of the drop-off. The share of Americans who have never married has been rising steadily in recent decades. At the same time, more adults are living with a partner instead of marrying and raising children outside of marriage. Marriage rates are also more closely linked to socio-economic status than ever before, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau da that shows that the education gap in marital status has continued to widen.

The mass entry of women into the work force is one reason for this financial insecurity. Ms. Warren said as much in her book, [Ms. Andrews source? Tucker Carlson] although she has since backed away from such a politically explosive suggestion. Those of us who don’t have a Democratic primary ahead of us can say what she won’t: When mothers started entering paid employment in large numbers in the 1970s, it led to a bidding war over middle-class amenities that left everyone paying more for the privilege of being no better off than before.Throughout this op-ed piece, she offers nothing to back up her pronouncements.
I don't see any evidence of a mass entry in this graph.
The percentage of men and women in the civilian work force has remained stable during the past 3 decades.
