Ok, so according to a recent study, if you're looking to avoid a hefty and heartbreaking divorce, ie anyone who get’s married, the solution is to tie the knot in your late 20s to early 30s.
The study which was undertaken by the University Of Utah concluded that lovers who get married between the ages of 28 and 32, to be precise, are less likely to split up.
Apparently, for each year after 32, the chances of divorce soar by about five per cent.
The new study shows a sort of bell curve. They call it the Goldilocks theory; you don't want to be too young or too old, and between 28 and 32 appears to be just right.
So Basically, Britney Spears was onto something with the whole “I’m not a girl, not yet a woman” mantra.
Now, we aren’t saying you can’t meet and wed your soul mate outside the set ages, but it actually makes sense really. Think about it, there are a lot of reasons 28-32 year olds seem to be the ripe for the (permanent) picking. People have (hopefully) gained some financial stability, made some important life choices, but you aren't so old that you aren't willing to relocate and make a few adjustments to your current surroundings. Plus, estranged spouses aren’t as prominent.
Regardless, these are only stats - they don't take your personal situation, your partner’s mummy-issues, or the fact that you’re a freaking catch into consideration. So be mindful of the new studies, but at the same time, do what feels right.
