What are the best years for marriage

New scientific research has shown that such a belief is somewhat right, and the best time to get married is from 28 to 32 years.

According to sociologist Nicholas Wolfinger, marriage in the late twenties and early thirties is much more suitable for people because they have already reached a certain degree of maturity, but they are still young and energetic.

Relative chances of divorce by age

Wolfinger analyzed the data he collected for a full six years, which includes a large number of people of all ages, levels of education and religions.

He found that couples who marry as teenagers have a 38 percent chance of divorce in the first five years. For those in their early twenties, that risk is 27 percent.

On the other hand, couples who get married between the ages of 25 and 29 have a 14 percent chance of divorcing in the first five years, while those who say a fateful “yes” between the ages of 30 and 34 have a 10 percent chance of requesting a divorce.

Wolfinger, who is a professor at the University of Utah, also analyzed the behavior of women over the past three decades and tried to find some connection with the number of partners before marriage and possible divorce.

Women who had more than ten partners before marriage have the highest chances of divorce, but similar behavior was shown by women who had up to two partners before marriage. Those who married innocently or who had between two and ten partners have a lower chance of divorce in the first five years of marriage.

“It is interesting that this only applies to women in the previous decade, ie during the 2000s. “Before them, during the eighties and nineties, women with two partners before marriage had the best chances to go to the registrar to cancel vows,” Wolfinger explained.
