When is the right time in life to get married; here it is

Even as emotions and finance are prime reasons most people cite to decide on their marriage, it is interesting to find out whether there is a perfect age when to get married for lifelong bliss. This should also be backed up by the relevant study. So there was an attempt to find out a formula to success when it comes to a wedding or a bond shared by two people.

However, a new study is seeking to change that notion. According to a research carried out by Nicholas H. Wolfinger, a professor at the University of Utah, USA, people who tie the knot between the ages of 28 to 32 have the least chances of getting divorced.

The study puts forth several reasons for this conclusion. It concludes that the chances of a divorce decline drastically as you age from your teenage years through your late twenties and early thirties. But the chances of divorce go up again as you move into your late thirties and early forties. “Past the age of 32 or so, the odds of divorce increase by 5 percent per year of age at marriage. 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,” says Wolfinger in the paper.

The study that has been published by the Institute of Family Studies also suggests that one of the reasons for marriages between 28 to 32 to work is that people are usually financially stable by that time and much more independent than in their early years.
