Many Millenials and Gen Zers have sworn off marriage– citing antiquated ideals, unstable social and political landscapes, and intimidating divorce rates as reasons not to tie the knot.
Plus, with the dating scene rapidly changing– normalizing casual partnerships and “situationships” more than ever before– marriage is no longer the “end goal” for everyone.
And unfortunately, this has left some young people hanging in the balance.
Perhaps they grew up picturing a loving marriage with children, a nice house, and a pretty white picket fence. At the same time, though, they see the opposing argument and realize how difficult marriage can really be.
