New York. 27th. September, 2018: According to the new surveys and the statistical data, the new generation has started taking their relationships differently from their ancestors’ and they act and think differently when it is about selecting a spouse for them.
The divorce rate in America is starting to fall and that is so because the young generation and the people under age 45 have got a new way to rise up against their elders by staying married. According to the new surveys and the statistical data, the new generation has started taking their relationships differently from their ancestors’ and they act and think differently when it is about selecting a spouse for them.
They perceive the relationships differently from the baby boomers that used to marry without even thinking at very young ages and then end up getting divorced and remarrying. They are trying to tie their knots at older ages when they are smarter, educated and employed and when their finances are well managed.
According to a survey conducted by Philip Cohen who is the sociology professor at the University of Maryland, the divorce rate in the U.S has been dropped by 18 percent since the year 2008 to 2016 and this is a big change.
The demographers have already known about this falling divorce rate even before this survey. But the reason b behind this is not really apparent. One of the theories that could be the reason behind it is that there is a fall in divorce rate because of the changing demographics like the aging population. This is so because the people who are elder are less to get divorced than the young ones. But after the survey done by Phillip Cohen, even if this age factor is controlled, the divorce rate still falls by 8 percent.
Not only the divorce rate, but there has also been a noticed fall in the marriage rate since for the last some decades. But the Cohen in his research has calculated the divorce rate by taking the ratio of divorces with the total number of married women in the U.S. So it is apparent that the fall in divorce rate is not because of the fall in the number of marriage. But it is the evidence of the fact that marriages nowadays are supposed to last longer than the marriage a decade ago used to. A sociology professor at Bowling State University, Susan Brown in the reply of Cohen’s survey’s result said that this change among our young nation is striking and this characteristic of young people shows that there would be an amazing decline in the divorce rate in near future.
