Infantilized Matrimony

As more couples put off marriage, brands scramble to encourage unions

Implications - Like buying a car or a house, marriage is viewed as a rite of passage into adulthood, but a distinct decrease in unions amidst Millennial couples is forcing brands to tailor wedding-centric goods to be more carefree and youthful as a way to encourage vow exchanges and tokens of affection. Providing cost-effective alternatives to lavish wares, brands are de-formalizing to be a more realistic option for Generation Y. As younger couples experience the hardships of job insecurity and longer time at home in the new millennium, brands are having no choice but to augment marriage to be more casual and personalized.
