I’m writing an article for “U.S. News & World Report” about Millennials putting off marriage and kids, often into their 30’s. I’d like to hear from some financial experts –academics, financial advisors– on whether you think that’s helping Millennials’ finances –more time to save money for a family and retirement– or hurting them –more time to fritter money away as a single person and less time, after you’ve spent money raising kids to save for retirement. I am hoping to get your thoughts based on what you’re seeing in your field. If there are any Millennials reading this, and you’ve put off raising a family and you think it’s helped or hurt your finances, I’m happy to hear from you as well.
