Thanks to new trends in relationships by millennials, two things are declining:
- Church attendance
For the first time in U.S. history, singles outnumber those who are married. Millennials are setting two new trends: fewer are getting married and fewer are attending church.
Millennials are hesitant to commit to marriage due to the pain many have experienced seeing their parents or other adults go through a divorce.
In fact, 25 percent of millennials do not get married at all.
A majority – 72 percent of millennials – do not attend church. In contrast, 49 percent of older generation Americans do not attend church.
As a singles pastor 20 years ago, I saw the horrific impact divorce has on kids. The result for marriage, personal identity, views of God and Christianity, and walking with Christ has been profound.
