73% of GenZ and Millenials Say it's Too Expensive to Get Married

It’s no secret that getting married is expensive, and in this economy, it’s become even more so. That’s why Gen Z and millennial couples aren’t getting married, a new study has found. The Thriving Center of Psychology spoke to 906 unmarried millennial and Gen Z couples this past June.

According to the study:

  • 73% said it’s too expensive to get married right now with the state the economy’s in
  • 83% said they want to get married someday
  • 3 in 5 are already living with their partner
  • 15% share a child with their partner
  • 70% have a pet with their partner


Research from wedding platform “The Knot” shows that the average U.S. wedding cost $30,000 last year, which is up $2,000 from the year before. In larger cities like Boston, New York, and San Francisco, the average cost of a wedding is well above that, with couples spending more than $50,000.
