What can we learn from millennials about marriage and divorce?

On Behalf of | Oct 9, 2019 | Family Law |

Millennials get a lot of bad things said about them. People in Mississippi and across the globe love to make fun of this generation. However, when it comes to marriage and divorce, they may be a little ahead of the rest of us. Business Insider explains that millennials seem to have a better grasp on how to make a marriage work and if they do end up getting a divorce, which is not very common, they are doing it in the least disruptive way possible. So, there is a lot that you can learn from this younger generation.

Millennials are driving a decreasing divorce rate. They simply are not getting divorced. This is likely due to the fact that they are very careful when choosing partners. They also wait to get married until they have a secure financial situation. Since money is often at the heart of a divorce, they are removing that stress right away.

This generation also is more likely to have parents who divorced. So, they understand what happens to a family that goes through the process. This drives them, even more, to make their marriages work.

In addition, if a millennial couple does get a divorce, they are already prepared because many of them create prenuptial agreements. This document can make a divorce easier and eliminate common arguments or issues that people have during the divorce process.

While millennials may not be perfect in every area of life, they do seem to have cornered the market on marriage and how to make it last. Plus, even if they end up divorced, it is not the terrible situation that so many other generations have made it. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
