Generation X is Middle-Aged
Lives That Are Marked By Divorce and Financial Instability
Because Generation X is eternally younger than the Baby Boomers, we just assumed they’d be eternally young. But a person born in 1965 turns 50 in two more years. Generation X somehow went gliding into mid-life without the rest of us noticing.
And, Gen-X’ers would say thats pretty typical, that they’ve never been part of anyone else’s plans from the time in their childhood when their parents got divorced and went spiraling off into personal reboot mode, leaving the kids to fen for themselves.
Now, many of them are stuck behind Boomers in various pipelines waiting for the Boomers to retire and, or, get out the way. And that’s not happening as fast as it should. So, today we’ll do what, if you believe certain narratives, we usually fail to do. We'll take the temperature of the cohort born between let’s say 1965 and 1980.
