    What does it MEAN?

    It means there has been a shift in social pressures. Media outlook on marriage changed. Parenting style changed. Being single is less of a stigmata than it was before.

    Selfish is considered a good thing today.

    Is this about youth in a particular country?
    There are multiple meanings for people wanting to wait until they're older for marriage.
    And selfishness is hardly one I'd expect to be amongst them. Not that it would be a problem, even if it were.
    But yea... the change in government benefits of marriage, the change in the economic situations people are in, the shift in cultural pressures (as previously mentioned) are just some of the possible reasons...

    Marriage isn't for everyone. Calling it "selfish" is selfish itself.

    I personally want to get married. Heh, looks like I just make the mark in that poll too since I turn 19 this year.

    I don't understand that chart.

    Most millenials have not yet turned 32, so how can we accurately determine the percentage that got married within that age range? Is it simply a projection?

    Millenials caused 9/11.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    What does it MEAN?
    Hook up culture is real. While there are pros, bonds are getting increasingly less significant.

    Agreed. The basic unit of any society is the "family" and that is undergoing significant change. Family used to mean a couple and their children. It's being replaced with The Daddy State (tm) a female and the children.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age. " - H.P. Lovecraft

    Yeah, I'm curious about this too.
