This study serves as a call for the profession of social work to explore and examine issues related to never married African American women, one of the fastest growing subgroups in the United States. This study provides a deeper understanding on the effects that marital attitudes and sociodemographic variables have on the anxiety symptoms of never married African American women (N = 269). Multivariate regression results indicated that age and marital attitudes contributed to the levels of anxiety symptoms. Older African American women with less favorable attitudes towards marriage reported higher levels of anxiety symptoms. Study limitations and next steps for future research are presented.
