Affectionate couple hugging face to face

If you want to get married, it’s best not to do so too young but it’s also good not to wait.  That’s what a study done by a University of Utah sociologist suggests.  Using data from the National Survey of Family Growth, Nicholas Wolfinger found that people who marry at 20 are 50-percent more likely to get divorced than those who marry at 25.  But, he also concluded those who marry after 32 have divorce odds increasing by five-percent each year.  Wolfinger says the trend is new since data from 2002 showed the divorce rate of people who got married after 30 was flattening instead of dropping.

So what’s a good age to get married?
