Spread the love

Marriage is considered a sacred event in a person’s life. Many have considered divorce. Others considered on staying together. Studies have shown that Generation Xers and Millennials have some of the greatest relationships.

Generation Xers and Millennials are facing a new facet of their lives. With marriages changing people’s minds.  Generation xers and Millennials know this. They have saved enough money, to buy a house and even have 401k’s. 

 According to an analysis by Philip Cohen, a sociology professor at the University of Maryland.  The divorce rate in America dropped by 18 percent between 2008 and 2016. Americans are marrying at a much older age. 

 Demographics aside,  older married couples are showing strength. Older generations are not foolish. Millennials and generation xers are remarrying over the ages of 30, 40, and 50. They are starting a new trend. They are thinking of education.  

 Older couples have come to plan everything. This way they will have everything correct. There is an outstanding amount of career-minded men and women. Baby Boomers make up for that workforce.  

 According to Bowling Green State University’s National Center for Family and Marriage Research.  Older generations have unusually high rates of divorce from 1990 to 2015. The divorce rates doubled for people 55 to 64 years old. It tripled for those 65 and older.

Younger generations are relying on higher education. Baby boomer couples are cohabiting and raising kids unmarried. They are thinking less of divorce and putting their children first.

They are talking to each other. Encouraging face to face communication. They mention their lives second. They mention their kids first. Ignoring the fact that sometimes they drive each other mad. 

It can be a remarkable coincidence. That many celebrities are doing this. It’s now shifting to generation Xers and Millennial couples. Many of them stay together. They are stirring away from being low-income or less educated.  

 The more educated each generation is, the less divorce will happen. Marriage brings people together. Many gen x and millennial’s know this. It could be the new lifestyle. With divorce falling in numbers and love lasting. Divorce is a sensitive subject.

Couples have talked among themselves. They are able to surface. Relying on each other. They are pushing for support. In the end, picking up where they left off. It might be true. Keeping their minds sound. Keeping their memories fresh.
