  • It appears that they do not have children, correct? Both of my daughters are what would be classified as millennials. The choice to have children or not have them is a big factor in how they, as a group, choose to live their lives. I am blessed (heck, I have worked hard my entire life) to be at the point where at 68, I am financially very comfortable for the rest of my life and work closely with my money manager to do so. I also have 1 or 2 secret investment tips up my sleeves that a former husband taught me well. My point is that my girls have a safety net in me, and will be gifted when they go to buy a home. They also have no education debt, and my younger girl received her Masters summa cum laude.
