Divorce is tied to your age when you get married

Divorce is tied to your age when you get married

Posted by Jay Turnbach | Apr 14, 2020 | 0 Comments

Some couples can get married at 18 and make it last for life. Others can put off getting married until they are in their 50s, and that can last, too. But it's important to note that those types of marriages have higher divorce rates. As it turns out, the age you are when you get married plays a big role in whether or not that marriage will last.

Some say that the best time for marriage is in your mid-to-late 20s. They point to marriages after people turn 26 as the ones that last the most often. They do warn that you don't want to wait too long, though, so it may help to think of 26-29 as that ideal range.

Why is this? Some believe it just comes down to options. If you get married at 18 to someone you dated in high school, you haven't met a lot of people who may actually be better options for you. If you get married at 40, though, a lot of those good options are gone; they married other people. You have to settle for less than the ideal.

It could also have to do with how you change during your life. A lot of change happens between 18 and 25, so getting married before that may mean you change into someone who is no longer compatible with your spouse. Similarly, waiting too long could mean you're used to living alone, and you can't change into someone who is comfortable being married.

Regardless of the reasons that you get divorced, if you do, make sure you know what steps to take.
