Keith my best guess on this is twofold: there are lots of good options available now that were not there when we were that age.  A long time ago... there wasn't much else to do.  Now there are so many good fun interesting options.  Young people realize that sex without emotional bonding isn't worth the hour of time investment.  Sex with the emotional bonding is well worth the lifetime of investment.
