Perfect Age to Say “I Do”

According to Time magazine, a new study suggests that the perfect age to get married is between the ages of 28 and 32.  According to the study, the couples that get married between 28 and 32 are the least likely to get divorced.  This is a new idea – prior to this, the thinking was that if you were older when you married, your relationship was more stable.

However, this study shows an upside down bell curve.  The later in life you get married, your chances of divorce rise again.  But many women feel pressured to get married by a certain age.  The U.S. Census Bureau reported in 2013 that the median age for marriage for women is 27 and 29 for men.

Clearly, the message isn’t resounding with everyone.
