Get married between the ages of 28 – 32 if you don’t want to get divorced 

That’s right, the study done by Nick Wolfinger, a sociologist from the University of Utah suggests that couples can avoid the divorce tragedy if they got married between the ages of 28 to 32 – at least in the first five years.

In previous research, sociologists believed the older married couples were less likely to get a divorce instead. Oh boy, here we are, reading this at 30 years old, only 2 years left to expiry!

Analysing data from 2006-2010 and 2011-2013 from the National Survey of Family Growth, he found that the odds of divorce decrease in the late twenties and early thirties.

He writes, “The chances of divorce go up again as you move into your late thirties and early forties.”  In which he added for each year after 32, the chance of getting a divorce goes up about 5%. WHUT!

Wolfinger says, “The kinds of people who wait till their thirties to get married may be the kinds of people who aren’t predisposed toward doing well in their marriages. People who marry later face a pool of potential spouses that has been winnowed down to exclude the individuals most predisposed to succeed at matrimony.”
