This is the age you need to get married to avoid divorce

Research claims.

If you have been wondering what age is the best to get married to avoid divorce, you’re in luck. A report released in 2016 claims the ideal age to head down the aisle is between 28 and 32. 

University of Utah sociologist Nicholas Wolfinger discovered those who married in that particular age bracket were the least likely to split up. Meanwhile, those who tied the knot in their late 30s were more likely to become divorced later. 

Wolfinger wrote in his report, ‘The odds of divorce decline as you age from your teenage years through your late twenties and early thirties. Thereafter, the chances of divorce go up again as you move into your late thirties and early forties.’

According to the study, for each year after 32 you get married, your chance of divorce increases by approximately five percent.
