Millennials credited with declining divorce rate

National News

(WTNH) – More Americans are staying married these days and millennials are being given much of the credit.

A University of Maryland Study shows that the divorce rate has dropped by 18 percent between the years 2008 and 2016.

Why the improvement?         

Researchers say it is because younger people are waiting longer to tie-the-knot and are being pickier about who they marry than people of their parent’s generation.
