When you were growing up, there were probably some milestones in your life you always planned on hitting: Getting married, having a kid, buying a house, and so on.
Well, those days are pretty much over. According to a new survey, 61% of Americans say a lot of the traditional milestones aren't really important to them anymore.
The five things we're now fine with delaying or even totally skipping are:
Saving for retirement, getting married, having kids, buying a home, and getting engaged.
So why are we delaying them? The five main reasons are:
Personal insecurities, not being financially stable, being with a partner who doesn't prioritize those things, paying off student loans first, and our friends are also delaying those things, so we don't feel any pressure to do them.
