Is marriage going out of style these days? do people not want kids anymore? or are those type of people just very vocal while others still want the traditional marriage and kids?
I still want to get married, and kids I'm still debating, but I'm leaning towards yes I want them. do many people still want these or no?

i personally don't know if I want to get married, but who knows. I may be more likely to get married if I end up with a girl, but we will see. I would like to have kids, in my mid-late 30s, but I wouldn't be devastated if I didn't have them. I do think I will have children, though, with a partner or on my own.
I think most people still are at least open to the possibility of marriage, but people are simply getting married older these days. womens rights, more options for career and doing what you want in life, economy, etc. all play into why people get married less and older these days. Also, divorce rates are really high so that leads to cynicism about marriage, if not simply a more pragmatic view of relationships.
That doesn't mean there still aren't people having children and getting married young. It definitely still happens, but its becoming less common. Also, it may be really common in certain areas than in others. In more conservative parts of the country, you will probably see it more. In more liberal parts of the country, especially in big cities where there are lots of great career opportunities, you will see it less. But you will still see it, make no mistake. I see children everywhere. That means some people are having kids. And many of those kids probably have married parents, or at least parents who were once married. Those parents may be older though.0
