Since Obama took office, Millennials have suffered greatly under his administration. Youth unemployment has skyrocketed, student loan debt continues to increase and due to financial concerns, many Millennials have put off once-common early adulthood goals of home ownership and marriage.
A Congressional report released by the Joint Economic Committee shows that the percentage of young people living with their parents has jumped from three to fourteen percent—an alarming statistic.
In 2013, the youth unemployment rate was at 16.3%. It now sits around 18.1%. There is no hope of improvement for this demographic either. Job opportunities are few and far between, even though this is a generation with more college degrees than any other.

New speculation has begun since the Duggar daughter has been married to Ben Seewald for over two months and a full-body photo of the bride has not been seen since before Christmas.
The couple exchanged vows on Nov. 1 and has been busy enjoying married life ever since. However, now there is the possibility of Jessa being pregnant given that she and her family do not actively practice using birth control since it goes against her religious views. The entire Duggar family believes that every life is a blessing from God and nothing should stand in the way of receiving that blessing.
People began speculating how long it would be until Jessa and Ben were expecting, especially since sister Jill and her husband Derick announced their pregnancy just weeks within returning from their honeymoon. Their first baby, a boy, is expected in the spring. Many have been comparing the two Duggar daughters since they courted and wed around the same times. more >>

In order to avoid having to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies, clerks of courts in Duval County, Baker County and Clay County have decided to put an end to all courthouse weddings in their counties, The Florida Times-Union reported Wednesday.
Although the report states that the clerks listed multiple reasons for their decision, with the state's limbo over gay marriage being one of them, the decision to stop performing courthouse weddings is due largely to trying to avoid performing same-sex weddings. more >>
