Have millennials driven divorce rate down? New study says credit them for an 18 percent drop

Doc Thompson

On Wednesday's episode of "The Morning Blaze," Doc Thompson and Jeffy Fisher discussed a Bloomberg story that said millennials are responsible for an 18 percent drop in divorce rates in the United States.

"According to new data, 'Younger couples are approaching relationships very differently from baby boomers. Generation X and especially Millennials are being pickier about who they marry. When they tie the knot is usually a little older, but then they actually stay married,'" Doc read.

Doc gave millennials credit for educating themselves first before making big life decisions, but he noted a serious downside to marrying later in life.

"The downside is that if we're not careful, we will end up being a society where we're breeding ourselves out of existence," Doc said.

The downside to waiting for marriage does present a problem from a larger perspective, but Doc commended millennials for staying married longer, and called it a "good thing."
