In case you are now in your late 20’s and you still haven’t found a significant other, do not fret as science is with you in this regard. Life has still something ahead of you so enjoy the last years of being single. Apparently, 32 is the best age for marriage according to research.
Apparently, 32 is the best age for marriage according to research.
Scientific data are there to support it so rule out the possibility this is made to console lonely singles out there. Nicolas Wolfinger is a sociologist at the University of Utah and was able to find interesting findings in his data analysis from the National Survey of Family and Households. It is a known fact that people who married younger have more tendency to get a divorce.
To start with, people who are wed at 20 are twice more likely to do this than those who are married at 25. Wolfinger made an analogy in this study: having your high school sweetheart as your husband or wife is exhilarating especially if you are still young.
However, first love also comes with insecurity, jealousy and fearful doubts in the future. Having these negative traits with someone you live with under the same roof is the perfect ingredient for divorce. It was found out that the likelihood to have a divorce lessens by 11 percent until you reach the age of 32.

However, it does not mean that marrying beyond 32 is good either. Past 32, the chances for a couple to have their marriage not working out raises by 5 percent annually.
“The kinds of people who wait till their thirties to get married may be the kinds of people who aren’t predisposed toward doing well in their marriages,” Wolfinger said in his research. “Maybe some of the thirty-somethings who would have made good spouses now feel perfectly comfortable being single, or living with partners out of wedlock,” He added. Nonetheless, these are general data and everyone has their unique case. You are you.
