It is a different era. My parents are boomers, I am an early millennial there are pros and cons to both. Life today is more accepting of more walks of life and more tolerant of how people are and I was more coddled growing up then my parents and was given constant support. However in my parents generation the economy was better and it cost a lot less to live even adjusted to today, tuition was not even a fraction of what it is today. People had benefits and job security even without a university degree but a university degree then was a set for life job. Times were also simpler and relationships seemed easier.

No, tuition is way higher than it was. People could get a good career that they could keep forever all benefits etc with little education. I am lucky to have had awesome parents but they agree too that it was easier in the 70s/80s. Inflation was not nearly as high, most people are not in the debt that they are in now. You could work a basic job in the summer and pay for school and afford to buy a used car plus rent and still be able to afford to go to the bars every night.
