Personally, I think it’s less about not being necessary and more about how the economy has so drastically changed. College is so expensive that most graduates have significant debt, and the housing market in many places have exploded, cost of living keeps going up without salaries matching the pace.

As much as people enjoy making fun of millennials, the truth is that it’s harder for them to HAVE things like a big house on two salaries, much less one, and afford to raise a large family in today’s economy.
