According to a study from the Urban Institute, millennials are pumping the proverbial nuptial brakes.

Why? Well, you probably guessed it –- money.

Folks at the institute say: "The economic shock of the recession put marriage on hold for many young adults."

Most just want to be financially stable before jumping the broom.

However, that doesn't always mean raising a family is being put on hold –- they're just not putting a ring on it.

Regardless, if the trend continues, 30% of millennial women will still be single by the time they turn 40.
