Millennials Aren’t Getting Married As Early
Most millennials are not interested in rushing down the altar. The median age for women to get married in 2017 is 27 and 29 for men, this is a huge change from 1960 when the median was 20 for women and 24 for men.
According to the Urban Institute, millennials are more likely to wait until they are 40 to get married. Most people nowadays are waiting for marriage for reasons like making sure they are secure in their career, not wanting to share college debt, or simply because they are not ready for commitment. Whatever the reason is, there is no law to say that you can’t marry someone later in age. Millennials want to wait.
Additionally, many people in this age group are choosing to go a different route (and often less expensive route) when it comes to engagement and wedding rings. Some are even opting for no rings at all.
