First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. We all know the popular kids' song, "K-I-S-S-I-N-G", and we all know that that's not always the way of it.

More and more millennials (born between 81-96) are waiting longer to get married and have kids. Whether it's the love of independence, the fear of the 50% divorce rate of the baby boomers (their parents), or financial strains, they're waiting longer.
