Millennials have been dubbed the “marrying later” generation, but they also have the reputation for having lower divorce rates than previous generations. In this listicle, we’ll explore some of the reasons why millennials have lower divorce rates.
Higher Education Rates
Millennials have the highest rate of college education of any generation, and statistically, college education is linked to successful marriages.
One person said, “Millennials have the highest rate of college education of any generation, and college education is linked to successful marriages statistically.”
Waiting to Get Married
Another said, “Millennials also have a lower rate of marriage than previous generations which means those of us that are choosing to get married are probably much more committed and prepared than those in previous generations”
Moving in Together First
Another person pointed out that many are choosing to move in together before getting married. “Not to mention many are moving in with each other for several years before even considering uttering the word marriage.”
Being More Selective
Millennials are looking for partners who are compatible with them much more often than previous generations did. By taking the time to find the right partner and thinking about what qualities are important to them, millennials may be more likely to have a successful marriage.
Learning from Previous Generations
Many millennials grew up seeing the negative effects of divorce on their parents and other family members. This may have motivated them to work harder at their own relationships and avoid the mistakes of previous generations.
“Economic uncertainty may be keeping people together that might otherwise want to split.”
While economic uncertainty may be keeping some couples together who might otherwise want to split, it’s likely not the only factor contributing to millennials’ lower divorce rates.
Another said, humorously, “It’s too expensive to get divorced and procure another girlfriend, I’ll just have to settle for my current wife.”
Waiting Until Brain Is Fully Developed
Another pointed out that “we’re also waiting until our brains are fully developed (late-20’s) before choosing our partners.”
