Thinking of getting married? Well, do we have some news for you!
According to a recent study by the University of Utah, your marriage is most likely to succeed if you tie the knot at 32.
While conventional wisdom suggests that the longer you wait, the higher your chances of living happily ever after, this study suggests of otherwise.
Sociologists analysed data from the US National Survey of Family Growth from 2006 – 2010 and found that your chances of divorce start to increase after 32.
However, the study also found that someone who gets married at 20-years-old is 50 percent more likely to get divorced than someone who weds at 25. And for each year from 20 to 32-years-old, your chances of divorce decrease by 11 percent each year.
Okay, so let’s get these facts straight. You can’t get married before 32. And you can’t get married after 32 either. If you want to give your marriage the highest chances of success, you must get married when you and your partner are both exactly 32. Woah – that’s a lot of pressure!
