Millennials, Marriage, and Children
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has reported that the growing trend among the millennial generation is to marry and have children after marriage.
Demographic Intelligence, a Virginia based research firm, found that millennials (people born between 1980 and 2000) are increasingly tying the knot and having children in wedlock. As recently as 2010 over 50 percent of children born to millennials were born to unmarried parents. But this year 59 percent of children born to millennials will be to married parents.
