It is a fact, Millennials, or Generation Y as they are sometimes referred to, may not be classically feigning illness to escape marital duty or work but they are shying away from accepting the urgency for marrying. The hesitancy to say “I do” by this influential generation is producing the lowest rates of marital unions today. Marriage rates for those marrying before age 40 are expected to be the lowest percentage ever.
There are that more adults under the age of 35 will forever remain single. Pew’s data, derived both from the U.S. Census Bureau and in-house outreach surveys, reports that Millennials are opting to stay single longer and forgoing the traditional marriage vows. The current statistical data and societal indicators have been broken down by age group and represent the following.
Millennials Age 18 to 24
Millennials Age 25 to 34
Millennials Age 35 and Older
Pew Research forum panelists believe this generation to be the most cautious. Aside from other identifying factors, such as education, finances, diversity and employment, Millennials may be hesitant to rush into marriage because so many have survived the highest U.S. divorce rate as their baby boomer parents opted to seek marital independence.
Although Pew researchers are quick to conclude that marriage has not completely fallen out of favor, the Millennial Generation has opted to approach the concept with assertive caution.
