This attitude towards marriage begins with relationships in Norway.
Despite the delay in marriage, many Norwegians find themselves in committed relationships through the dating process, which often leads to living together and even having children (most first born children in Norway are born out of wed-lock).
These things, much like gaining an education and starting a career, are often viewed as more important than marriage itself.
A part of this is because many people view marriage as simply a legal standing, plus few people put great weight in religious reasons that encourage marriage.
Despite the delay, and at times lack of belief in marriage, people in Norway still marry in significant numbers.
