Born between the years 1965-1980, this generation grew up in the most exciting and eclectic decade in pop culture history—the 80’s. However, the collapse of the Berlin wall and the explosion of the space shuttle became metaphors for what happened to the American family. Divorce rates reached an all-time high leaving many in this generation to be raised by MTV and Ferris Bueller. Their friends became their families and TV shows like The Simpsons captured the cynicism of the most aborted age group in American history. As they heal from childhood pain, their commitment to marriage and family will be the greatest contribution of Generation X.
