Research by the University of Utah has revealed that you should actually get married at some point between the ages of 28 and 32 to boost the chances of a lasting marriage. The study came up with the four-year age range after analyzing data from the 2006-10 and 2011-13 National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG). Led by researcher Nick Wolfinger, the study goes against the idea that the older you get married, the less likely it is that you’ll end up divorced. Instead, researchers found that the divorce risk is higher when you’re younger, before reducing steadily towards your late 20s and early 30s. As soon as you’re past the just-right “Goldilocks zone” of 28-32, the divorce risk then starts to increase again, with a higher chance the older you get.
