Millennials are killing marriage — here’s why that’s a good thing

When Erin Lowry, 28, author of Broke Millennial, marries her partner of eight years this September, they both will be nearly 30 and will have been dating for eight years.

That’s nearly 2.5 times the national average time spent dating before marriage, but Lowry said she has no regrets. She said marriage has long been part of the plan for the couple, but they both wanted to finish their degrees, get settled into careers, and her partner wanted to attack his student loans before they committed to marriage.

“For us, we’ll enter marriage in a stable and healthy financial situation, even though he has some student loan debts, and we know that being open with each other about money and being in a good situation does automatically remove some of the common tension of marriage,” she said.
