This Is The Best Age To Get Married, Apparently

New research says couples who get married at this age are least likely to split.

Whether you’re single, dating or planning your upcoming nuptials, you may interested to know that science has found the exact age you should tie the knot, if you’re to have a successful marriage.

According to a report by the University of Utah your chances of marital success are better if you get married between the ages of 28 and 32.

“The odds of divorce declines as you age from your teenage years through your late 20s and early 30s,” explains the study’s lead author Nick Wolfinger. “Thereafter, the chances of divorce go up again as you move into your late 30s and early 40s.”

And it gets worse, because for every year after the age of 32 you add an extra five percent to your odds of splitting up. No pressure then, eh?

Why is 28-32 the best age to get married? Wolfinger suggests that it may be because people at this age are less set in their ways, while those who wait until later in their 30s may be the kinds of people who aren’t predisposed toward doing well in their marriages.”

Does this mean we’ll all be rushing off down the aisle before the age of 32? Nope, we’ll be doing it if and when it feels right. #GirlPower.
