    Though they're sometimes labeled as "lazy" and "entitled," millennials are actually making significant sacrifices in order to get ahead in their careers, CNBC reported.

    When financial services company Comet surveyed 364 single employed millennials without children, they found that relationships were an area in which 20- to 36-year-olds were willing to cut back. In fact, 41 percent said they would end a relationship for a promotion.

    Comet also found that almost a third said they would end a relationship for a raise. These workers on average said that a $36,000 raise would convince them to put off having a relationship.

    Millennials are so focused on career advancement, that respondents admitted that they'd be willing to stay single for 11 years, delay marriage for seven years and put off having kids for eight — if it meant getting ahead at work, according to the Comet survey.
