When we think about the behavior and life of modern generation, one thing we find in common is a very interesting fact. Most of them don’t want to grow up even when they are grown up. It is physiologically and scientifically proven that 20s is the time of your life. People live the most, see the most, and achieve the most while in their 20s. In fact, you are the most active and energized when you in your 20s. At the same time, you are mature. But people are not the same as the previous generations anymore. Here is a comparison of how the 20s of nowadays differs from the 20s of previous generations.
People of modern generation are ambitious. However, often they don’t have a career when they are in their 20s. If we look at our parents or grandparents in their 20s, they had a family, a full-time job, kids. Also they had basically everything, which we think and plan to have in our late 30s or early 40s.
People of modern generation make an impression of being reckless and childish in terms of their future. The time they can have a real career, they spend it exploring the market for options. Finally, when they fail, they succumb back to what they were doing at the very beginning. With so many options in our plates, it becomes more difficult to choose what we really want. Our parents’ generation never had the luxury of having so many options. They lived simple life and job, which paid the bills.
While choosing career path, the family played a key role. Thus, most of our parents followed the same direction as their parents in careers. Today, the youth wants to explore new opportunities. Undoubtedly, such a desire has led many genius and talented people to great discoveries. However, it’s very easy not to see the difference between the desire to find oneself and simple procrastination.
It quickly becomes the toughest conversation for millions of the 20s. When will you get married? Or when will you have a baby? People of modern generation are kids in grown-up suits when it comes to family and marriage. They are just not ready. No matter if they are 21 or 29, they are not ready to get married. They like to date and have fun as much as they can. Giving commitment in a relationship becomes a big deal, marriage becomes out of the picture.
Unlike them, our previous generations loved the thought of marriage and family. Most of the people in the previous generations had at least one kid by the time they were 26. Notably, not because they had to, but because they wanted to. They liked the idea of being a grown up and having a family of their own. However, we should not forget that religious and cultural influence was much stronger before. Nowadays, young people have free access to contraception and abortion. In addition, very often couples live together without marriage. And of course, have intimate relationship.
According to statistics, today people start having babies at the average an age of 32. The fact which many know but don’t acknowledge is that the fertility rate reduces after age 35. The fertility rate is the best when you are in your 20s and it keeps on reducing as you grow old. People of this generation delay having kids and when they try, a number of difficulties arrive. In addition, later you have kids the more stress it puts on the woman’s body. There is the concern of post-partum depression and it happens with both the partners. Especially if you are in your 30s. Accordingly, 20s is the best time to have kids.

In fact, globalization and absence of harsh prohibitions have effect on personality of people. Thus, the level of criminality decreases. The quality of life in general becomes much better.
