Millennials Are Responsible For Decline in Divorce Rate
Well, jokes on you world, it looks like we're good at something. Something that many generations before us can't seem to figure out how to do. According to a new study, we're lowering the divorce rate.
A lot of people might think we don't have our lives together because were "too busy on our phones" and "too busy destroying the planet". You might be partially right. But I think it's because people are getting smarter about marriage. Bloomberg explains,
"New data show younger couples are approaching relationships very differently from baby boomers, who married young, divorced, remarried and so on. Generation X and especially millennials are being pickier about who they marry, tying the knot at older ages when education, careers and finances are on track. The result is a U.S. divorce rate that dropped 18 percent from 2008 to 2016."
Scientists also say that the divorce rate is only going to keep declining in coming years. Along with waiting to get married, many younger couples are just opting out of marriage all together. I mean hey, they save a lot of money, time, but they miss out on a lot of presents and I guess the best night of their life.
I think I speak for millennials everywhere when I say, you're welcome for keeping love alive, or being too poor to afford a wedding.
