Millennial Trend Forecasting: Beta Testing Marriages!

Yep thats right Beta testing marriages.

This comes from a survey given in conjunction with the new USA Network drama, Satisfaction (so not exactly the Brookings Institution). Led by a team of trend researchers, the survey asked 1,000 millennials about their feelings towards, and expectations for, marriage. They also provided a number of "marriage models" and surveyed the millennials on which options they might consider. The models, which would essentially be contract agreements between couples, include:

Presidential: Vows last for another four years, but after 8 years you can elect to choose a new partner.

Real Estate: Marriage licenses are granted on 5, 7, 10 and 30 year terms, after which the marriage must be renegotiated to be extended.

Beta: The union can be formalized or dissolved after a two-year trial period.

Twenty-one percent said they would be open to the Presidential option and 36% agreed with the Real Estate model. The most popular option was the Beta model with 46% of those surveyed saying they would being willing to consider the option. One of the arguments is that since millennials are used to having many options in every other area of their lives, why would marriage be any different?

However, when you have to interact with them on a regular basis over the next several years, it has the potential to become uncomfortable.
