Travel Not Marry Says Parents

Posted on : 14-12-2015 4:59

Parents Want Their Children To Travel Instead Of Getting Married.

Travelling Instead of MarryingWell, it seems the world is changing according to a new survey from insurance and investment group One Family.

The company decided to issue a survey to find out what parents wanted for their children and it seems marriage is not one of them.

Recent Survey

According to the survey, parents no longer want their children to get married in their twenties and have a family of their own, they want their children to explore more of the world.

It seems parents feel having fun and gaining knowledge before starting a family was very important.

The survey found 47% of mums and dads questioned said they wanted their children to travel around the world and enjoy life before they got too old.

According to the feedback from mums and dads, it was more important for children to travel either with friends or backpacking than getting married.

Differences of Opinion

Parents in the survey felt that 30 and above was the right age to settle down and have children while only 37% of young adults agreed. 28% said they would like to get married in their 20s, showing parents may not get it right all the time.

One-thing children and their parents did agree on, was they felt it was important to have a good job and a mortgage by the time they were 30.

Some Travel Agents Surprised

The survey did surprise a lot of travel experts who believed more children would like to travel around the world instead of getting married. However, it seems marriage and a mortgage and family life is something very important with the younger generation.
