Surely you have sat down with your grandparents sometimes and they usually tell you about those old "Back in the days" stories and you compare then versus now to feel the different. Lifestyles changes and that's inevitable as so many things grow to be the standard: technologies, makeups, dressing, food and internet. Here, we've collected 15 ways our life have changed over the past 50 years.

Let’s dive into the annals of history with Break to see how different our world is from that of our grandparents.
