perfect age to get hitched

What is the perfect age to get married and avoid getting divorced? The Goldilocks conundrum of marrying not too young and not too old has been debated in the past. A new study conducted at the University of Utah and published by the "generally pro-marriage Institute of Family Studies" determined that if you get married between the ages of 28 and 32, you are less likely to have that marriage dissolve in divorce. While there is no perfect science or method to a stable marriage, according to the National Survey of Family Growth the "odds of divorce decline as you age from your teenage years through your late 20s and early 30s. Then the chances of divorce go up again as you move into late 30s and early 40s. The suggested "perfect age" for marriage may have something to do with the fact that humans are no longer blinded by raging hormones and are not so old or set in their ways and may have a stable job and income to support a family. Do not worry if your marriage did not being in this sweet spot. A successful marriage requires two people who are in love and want to work on that relationship. time
