Fewer millennials are getting married

Posted:
Love and marriage.  Love and marriage -- are apparently not on everyone's minds.
    
The millennial generation is on pace to have the lowest rate of marriage by age 40 compared to any other generation.
    
This means 30% of millennial women won't marry by the time they turn 40.
    
A recent report states several reasons for Generation Y-ers wanting to stay single.
    
The first is that more Americans are living together without getting married; with some even raising families.  Also, some millennials feel they need to become established before they walk down the aisle.

Experts say they think the economy could take a hit because married couples are generally better off financially -- meaning they spend more money.
