Millennials on track to slow divorce rates


Millennials are bringing the divorce rate down.

An analysis by University of Maryland sociology professor Philip Cohen has found Americans between the ages of 23 and 38 are tending to get married and stay married.

The research says they approach relationships very differently from Baby Boomers, who tended to marry young, get divorced, then remarry.

Both members of Generation X, and especially Millennials, are choosier about their partners.

They also tend to tie the knot when they’re older, and already have their careers and finances are on track.

It all translates into an 18 percent dip in the divorce rate between the years 2008 and 2016.
