Did you know there was an ‘ideal’ age to get married?

All the single ladiessss out there in your twenties apparently time is on your side (as it should be, we need age to be on our side some times right?). According to science the perfect age to get hitched is 32!

Each additional year of not being married before the age of 32 is apparently the best thing for you to ensure a successful marriage. Nicholas Wolfinger, a sociologist at the University of Utah, has been analyzing info and the findings are not exactly what we were expecting or should we say we swear we have seen every number under the sun in ‘other’ studies that tells us a different ‘ideal’ age.

Sooooo, apparently those who wed at the age of 25 are half as likely to get a divorce compared with couples who married at 20.


The research shows that till the age of 32, each year of age in the marriage reduces the odds of divorce by 11 percent. But…I guess you may need to lock this marriage in right at the ripe age of 32 because past the age of 32, the odds of divorce increase by 5 percent each year.

32 is the age – not before and not after. Holy smokes, good luck making sure it happens for you at 32…no pressure at all.

I say that we all do it whenever the bloody hell we want and with whomever you want…worry about the rest later. I married my hubbarooni at the ripe old age of 24 and I would still choose to marry him now (well…most days – shhhh, don’t tell him). And, ummm…what about the lovers who choose not to marry?

What age did you get married? Do you think it was the right age for you?
