New Braunfels couple Margaret and Jerrol Weidner have been married for 55 years. “I believe that when they got married it was a commitment for life,” the couple's daughter Rishanne Frech said of her parents’ 55 years. “They live their vows out daily. Do I think everything has been perfect all their marriage? No, but when they got married they committed to love each other in good times and bad. It was not just a piece of paper that they signed — it was a choice that they made and choose to make to love each other.”

Marriage may be a tale as old as time, but how each generation views it is a different story.

Just as they have changed the workforce and many industries, Millennials (ages 25-39) and Generation Z-ers (ages 9-24) are changing marriage — but not in the ways most people might think.
