Millennials: Of weddings, diamonds and movies

First comes love, then comes marriage? Apparently not anymore. In the 1980s, two-thirds of people age 25 to 34 had married. Today, millennials are saying “I Don’t” to saying “I Do.” Over half of people in that age group are single.

And along with a decline in marriage rates, there has been in a decline in diamond sales, even among those who are deciding to tie the knot. Instead, millennials are going for less expensive and more unique options for their engagement rings.

Now, people used to make a night out of heading to the theater, grabbing a gigantic tub of refillable popcorn, and watching a movie. These days, even the draws of reclining chairs, bar service and surround sound are not enough to fill up a movie theater.

But who would want to get themselves all the way to the movie theater and spend money on a ticket when they could, instead, stay in their pajamas, turn the lights off and stream films from the comfort of their own couch?
