On Millennials in Relationships, in the New York Times

Well, it took me a few months to see it, but it turns out I was quoted in The New York Times in an article about GenXers and Millennials in relationship.

I think far too much is made of these supposed generational differences. The emphasis on technology, for one, is a bit over-emphasized… yet! the statistics show that Millennials are lowering the divorce rate overall — by 18% so far! So perhaps, after all the accusations they’ve endured, they’re doing something right…

Here’s my take, from the article “I Married a Millennial. I Married a Gen Xer. Now What?” published June 7th, 2018.

“Satya Doyle Byock, a psychotherapist in Portland, Ore., whose practice specializes in treating people in their 20s and 30s, notes that many of her millennial clients also aren’t willing to endure an unhappy or stagnant relationship. And that, she said, is a good thing.

‘Some might view that as entitled,’ Ms. Doyle Byock said, ‘but I see that as hopeful.’”
