According to the World Economic Forum, millennials—Americans below 45 years old — are staying married more often than other generations. Consequently, the national divorce rate dropped by 18% between 2008 and 2016.
The millennials’ low divorce rate moves away from the higher divorce rate of the “baby boomers.” Interestingly, baby boomers continue to divorce into their 60s and 70s. Most millennials are getting married later and are more likely to be highly educated, which lays a solid foundation for lasting marriages.
What’s more, less educated and poorer citizens are opting not to get married at all. Some opt to cohabit and raise the kids together instead of tying the knot.
No matter how old you might be, if you’re contemplating terminating your marriage, an Aurora divorce attorney can navigate the process for you and protect your future.
Generally, finances play a significant role in the stability and suitability of a marriage. Sustained economic stress and financial strain predictably result in less stable and volatile marriages.
Here’s why some millennials are avoiding or delaying marriage:
Many millennials consider delayed marriages to generate more wealth. Coincidentally, most millennials sign prenups before tying the knot to secure their assets in case of divorce.
Most baby boomers who tied the knot in their early twenties continue to divorce at a high rate. On the contrary, millennials who marry later in life positively contribute to the lowering divorce rate.
Here are a few positive benefits of marrying late:
While this generation has a lower divorce rate, divorce cases certainly happen. People of any age should seek legal help when considering a divorce.
