REVEALED: THE BEST AND WORST AGES TO GET MARRIED

Is there an ideal age range to get married? Science thinks there is and has revealed the best and worst ages to get married.

According to Nicholas Wolfinger, the best age range to get married is between 28 and 32. Wolfinger made this discovery after analysing data from 2006 to 2010 in the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG).

It was previously thought that getting married when one is older reduces the chances of having a divorce but the research by Wolfinger disagrees with this idea.

According to the research by Wolfinger, you are more likely to get a divorce if you get married too early or too late.

Couples who got married as teens have a 38% risk of divorce; those who got married in their early twenties have a 27% risk of divorce but there is a strong decline for couples who marry between ages of 25 and 29 (14%) and ages 30 to 34 (10%).

The risk divorce starts increasing by age with couples who wed for the first time at age 35 or above having a 17% risk of divorce.

So at what age do you intend getting married?
