Millennials Are Causing the U.S. Divorce Rate to Plummet
Most people in the US know the commonly circulated statistic that 50% of marriages end in divorce. And while this was true for several years, that stat alone has always been very misleading. With so many variables to consider, such as the age at marriage, education level, financial security, and geographic area within the US, it is nearly impossible to give one definitive number regarding the divorce rate. Now, consider how many younger people are forging a unique path and choosing not to marry until later than traditionally expected, if at all. This throws another curve into the actual divorce figures. But regardless of your marital status, there may come a time when you want to sever a long-term relationship and move forward in another direction.
