Millennials Are in No Rush to Marry

Source: Gallup
Perhaps contrary to expectations, given normal demographic patterns of adolescents’ movement into early adulthood and family formation, data show that significantly more millennials are currently single/never married than was true for those in older generations, and considerably more are in domestic partnerships. Specifically, more than half of all millennials (59 percent) have never married, and 9 percent are in domestic partnerships. Gallup has noted a trend toward fewer young adults being married in recent years. For millennials currently aged 18 to 30, just 20 percent are married, compared with nearly 60 percent of 18- to 30-year-olds in 1962. Millennials are clearly delaying marriage longer than any generation before them, which could have a significant impact on household formation.
