An article in The New York Times reads: "Millennial men — ages 18 to early 30s — have much more egalitarian attitudes about family, career and gender roles inside marriage than generations before them, according to a variety of research by social scientists.
Yet they struggle to achieve their goals once they start families, researchers say." That's possibly because of a relative lack of family-friendly policies in the American workplace.
INSIDER's Kim Renfro reported that some sociologists say there could be a link between declining divorce rates and more people deciding to live together before marriage.
A 2009 Australian study, published in the Journal of Marriage and Family, found that "for more recent marriages, premarital cohabitation reduces the risk of separation." Presumably, that's because people have a chance to realize they're not compatible after cohabiting for years.
And indeed, 64% of millennials and Gen X-ers believe that living together before marriage may help prevent divorce.
Younger generations of Americans are less likely than older generations to report having extramarital sex.
Compare that to 32% of Gen X-ers and 40% of Baby Boomers when they were the same age.
According to a Pew Research Center survey, published in 2010, 85% of millennials say they would be fine with a marriage to any racial group (the survey asked specifically about African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, and white Americans).
When people born in the 1960s were ages 20 - 24, just 6% said they hadn't had sex. Helen Fisher, an anthropologist and the Chief Scientific Advisor to Match.com, told Pantazi this is possibly because millennials are more ambitious in their careers and more cautious about starting relationships. Dating sites and apps are especially popular among younger generations of Americans.
And a growing body of research suggests those who connect through online-dating services go on to have happier marriages, and are less likely to divorce.
