You better get a bae to put a ring on it.
A recent study suggests that people should get married between the ages of 28 and 32 if they want to have a long-lasting marriage. They say it’s because people in this age group already have ‘relationship experience’ and are more likely to make sober decisions, that they won’t be too desperate or gullible.
More importantly, someone between 28-32 years old is probably more financially stable.
And since you have a bit more money, you can afford to settle down. But don’t get relaxed for too long, because the likelihood of divorce goes up again as you move into your late thirties and early forties. For each year after 32, the probability of divorce goes up about 5%.
Even worse for those of you in your thirties and late twenties, another study called the 37% Rule, claims that people should get married, or think of getting married by the time they are 26! They reckon, assuming you’re looking for love between the ages of 18 and 40, the best age to start seriously considering your future husband or wife is just past your 26th birthday.
By choosing your future spouse before that age, you could miss out on great potential partners who you’ll meet later in life. But, if you wait any longer, then your potential husband or wife could be taken off-the-market.
So…are you planning on getting hitched anytime soon?
