From my post over at The Future Well:

Did anyone ask us if we want the future?

How do we understand the sequelae of a generation that’s getting married at an average age of 28? If people are getting married later and having children later, then those children will have parents that die sooner. How will children whose parents die when they are teenagers deal with having no parents as twenty and thirty-somethings? Will this make their lives less happy? Even more so, what will come of their kids who grow up with no grandparents?
