Post Boomers Not Getting Married

In our book, The Young Adult’s Guide to Understanding Personalities, my daughter, Toni Rothpletz, and I write about the changing interests of post-boomer generations.

The Wall Street Journal reported today that less young people are deciding to get married. “ Marriage rates among young adults have been dropping for decades. But data released Tuesday by the Census Bureau show that for the first time the proportion of people between the ages of 25 and 34 who have never been married exceeded those who were married in 2009—46.3% versus 44.9%, according to an analysis by Mark Mather, a demographer at the Population Reference Bureau, a non-profit research organization in Washington.” The changing interests of this post-boomer group has been evident in the workplace for a while now. Sixty Minutes did a nice article on how millennials have unique work expectations. Now we are seeing that this group also has unique coupling/marriage ideas.
