    到什么年龄做什么事?然而有些成年人的人生,仿佛在某个阶段按下了“暂停”键,买房结婚生子这些人生计划,似乎都遥遥无期。

我们来看一段相关的英文报道

    Generation pause refers to young adults who are not able to do things previously typical for their age group such as buy a home, start a family and have kids because they are short of money. 
    Young Britons have turned into ‘Generation Pause’ and now routinely delay life events such as marriage and having children due to financial worries, a study found. 
    However their problems could be partly due to spending habits. Those in Generation Pause admitted spending four times as much on holidays and three times as much on fashion and personal grooming as they did investing in pensions and savings. 


    暂停的一代”指到了一定年纪,却因为没有钱而无法像前辈人那样买房、结婚生子的年轻人群体。
    调查显示,出于经济担忧,很多年轻的英国人成为“暂停的一代”,他们通常更晚结婚生子。
    然而他们的问题可能部分出自消费习惯。“暂停的一代”承认,和在养老金和储蓄方面的投资相比,他们花在假期上的钱是前者的四倍,花在时尚和个人打扮上的钱是其三倍。
【讲解】
    文中的generation pause就是“暂停的一代”的意思,由generation (代,产生)和 pause (暂停,中止) 组成。相关短语有:pause and ponder (踌躇)、dial pause (拨号间隙)、pause button (暂停按钮)、lost generation (迷惘的一代)等。

    最后一段中 pensions and savings 意为“养老金和储蓄”, pension 除了表示养老金,退休金,年金,还有“私人小旅店(欧洲等地的)”的意思,如:He had stayed at the pension for a fortnignt. (他已在那个小旅馆待了两个星期。)
