Will Millennials Be the Change to Our Nation’s High Divorce Rates?

Published

on

Millennials are a controversial generation.

Today’s twenty- and thirty-somethings seem to both vex older generations for their lack of work ethic, over-dependence on technology, and apparent inability to pick up the reigns of our economy.

On the other hand, there’s also a lot of evidence to indicate that millennials are the driving force behind some important social changes in our nation after decades of influence by the wild children of the Baby Boomer generation.

Millennials tend to oppose abortion more than their parents, something that seems rather contrary to the current rhetoric of our day.

Millennials are more likely to be politically conservative than their parents, perhaps because the only way to rebel from parents who were themselves rebels in their day is to reform.

Now, the BBC reports, new research is showing that while millennials are less likely to marry than their parents, those who do are significantly less likely to get divorced than their parents.

Between 2008 and 2016 the divorce rate in the US fell by 18%, according to a report from the University of Maryland.

The author put it down partly to people born between 1980 and the mid-1990s getting divorced at a lower rate than their baby boomer parents.

“Marriage has become more selective, and more stable, even as attitudes toward divorce are becoming more permissive,” the report suggested.

Millennials are three times less likely to marry than their grandparents, but those who do tie the knot appear to be staying together.

This is an interesting trend in a generation that was raised amid high divorce rates and an increasingly jaded view of marriage.

I would offer that perhaps many millennials tend to no longer view marriage as anything very significant, choosing instead long-term, semi-committed relationships with squishy definitions and an easy out.

While on the other hand, other millennials observe what they believe to be a negative impact the lack of regard for the sanctity of marriage has had on our culture and endeavor to take it more seriously than their parents’ generation.

Either way, it’s good news that divorce is becoming less common. The tides of culture may constantly change, but the sacred institution of marriage as defined by God never will.

Kanye West Asked ‘Jesus Is King’ Employees To Abstain From Pre-Marital Sex; Says Porn Is ‘Not Okay’

Published

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…

We just ask that everyone please be respectful of their privacy during this time and allow them to grieve their loss.” TobyMac — real name Kevin Michael McKeehan — was touring in Canada when he received the news of his son’s untimely death. Last year, TobyMac released a song called, “Scars, dedicating it to his first-born son. The Christian artist posted a video where he explained the meaning of the song saying it was intended to provide encouragement and support for parents who sometimes “insulate [hardships] from the ones we love, our children.” “So to see them go out there and do this real world it’s painful. I wrote this one for my boy,” TobyMac explained. “I wanted to let him know that I’m here for him and God is there for him. So lift your head my son to where your help comes from.” Here’s a few lyrics from the song that illustrated what the Christian rapper said: When life cuts so deep Try and remember You are not alone We’ve all been there Scars come with livin’ You are not alone We’ve all been there So lift your head, lift your head Lift your head to where your help comes from Yeah,…
