"In the long run" - The Michigan Daily. 1/28/2020.

In a 2013 interview with The New York Times, University of Michigan sociologist Elizabeth Armstrong explained that "increasingly, many privileged young people see college as a unique life stage in which they don't - and shouldn't - have obligations other than their own self-development."

In the same article, a young woman with a serious boyfriend told the Times that she felt "as if she were breaking a social taboo," saying, "Am I allowed to find the person that I want to spend the rest of my life with when I'm 19? I don't really know. It feels like I'm not."
