Are "millennials" taking a different approach to divorce?

There are millions of people in America who belong to the so-called "millennial" generation. These individuals, typically categorized as those who were born between 1980 and 2000, have been seen as changing quite a few different aspects of American society, from how we communicate with one another, to how we work and how we form relationships. Technology, it seems, is at the heart of it all.

So, are millennials taking a different approach to divorce as well, changing how marriages end? Well, according to a recent report, that very well may be the case. Many reports have noted that millennials are waiting longer to get married than previous generations and, when they do get married, these individuals are seemingly more hesitant to proceed with a divorce. However, when they do, they may be worried about how they are perceived by others in their online presence.

For example, certain common social media apps include Facebook and Instagram. When a recently divorced millennial decides to change a relationship status update to "divorced" or "single" from "married," it can come with a dramatic emotional impact. Family and friends are updated on the change in status, and ex-spouses must overcome their temptation to "follow" each other on social media in post-divorce life.

On the other hand, the recent report also noted that millennials seem to be employing prenuptial agreements at greater numbers than previous generations. This can be smart, helping to provide direction and structure if a divorce is the end result of a marriage.
