They’ve been called the hookup generation, the selfie generation, and generation YOLO (that stands for “you only live once,” for you fogies). But the snark-free, nondisparaging term they prefer is millennials, and they are 80 million strong, the largest generation in our history.
So when they come up with new ideas, the rest of us should probably listen. Their last few — Facebook, Tumblr, Tinder, Lyft, and Mashable, among others — have helped revolutionize centuries-old institutions.
Now, it seems, they may want to help reinvent another centuries-old institution, marriage — by changing “till death do us part” to something closer to “for the next couple of years.”
