More Millennials Want to Diverge from Liberal Parents' Relationships

According to this NY Post article, more millennials want more traditional marriages:

Midtown psychologist Anjhula Singh Bais says she’s seen more young people of late aspiring to “Leave It to Beaver”-style marriages. They either come from divorced households, are wary of the tumultuous online dating scene or want to diverge from their liberal parents’ relationships.

The latter was the case for Tesse Struve, a 33-year-old homemaker who grew up in a “very feminist” household in San Francisco. She followed her parents’ wishes and got a bachelor’s degree in anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and became a school teacher.

But when she married her husband, Erik, in 2012, she quit her job to take care of the house and, eventually, their daughter Kenna, now 3 years old. She now runs a blog, Millennial Housewife, devoted to Generation Y ladies who are more Betty Draper than Sheryl Sandberg.


I wonder if the Millennial generation will have fewer divorces in future years? If they have more or the same, will the fact that women are staying home and men working make the divorce laws even more skewed in favor of women? Will it be Leave-it to Beaver marriages and feminist style divorces?
