Increasingly, I see people around me pairing off, getting hitched, and inevitably creating a family soon after college. Within six months, I’ve heard of five different couples getting engaged. If that rate continues, 84 new couples will be taking the plunge over the next seven years. By then, I’ll be 32 and own five cats named after Kardashians. Wasn’t our generation looking to find jobs they didn’t hate and spend money they didn’t have for a couple years? Apparently not anymore. More
