Here Are The Best And Worst Ages To Get Married, According To A New Study

A new study has just revealed the best and worst ages to get married.

The research was carried out by sociologist Nicholas Wolfinger, who recently analysed marriage data from 2006 to 2010 in the National Survey of Family Growth, finding that divorce is most likely if you get married after your mid-30s.

The best age to get married, it seems, is between the ages of 28 and 32. On either sides of these ages, divorce rates increase drastically.

Wolfinger says this trend's "existence is beyond question", according to Psychology Today, having replicated the research on data from 2011 to 2014 with the same result.

The research also showed that after five years of marriage, couples who married as teens have a 38% risk of divorce and those in their early twenties have 27% chance.
