Bachelor and Bachelorette Party Misadventures That Made People Reconsider Getting Married

|

Across generations, the reasons why people marry have changed. For members of the Silent Generation (just before the Baby Boomers), for example, remaining unmarried was embarrassing. Marriage, therefore, was a necessity, and they committed themselves at a young age. By contrast, younger generational cohorts may go into matrimony for financial reasons, love, sex, and sometimes even simple convenience.

Studies show that there’s been a significant decrease in marital unions in recent years. Those who marry generally do so at a later age, and many defer or avoid having children. It could be that younger people find the practice impractical in an economically challenging modern-day setting. A small fraction of marriage cancellations can also be attributed to mishaps at bachelor/bachelorette parties. As comical as it may sound, the events you’re about to discover traumatized the participants to such an extent that many chose to avoid marriage altogether.
