When all your mates are busy getting engaged and popping out sprogs in their mid-20s, it’s refreshing to see that true love can be found (and formalised) in your mid-to-late 30s.

Harry and Meghan will be 33 and 36 respectively when they tie the knot next weekend. Very sensible ages for marriage, you might think. But according to a professor, newlyweds in their 30s are more likely to get divorced than couples who get hitched earlier. Nicholas Wolfinger, professor of family and consumer studies, and of sociology at the University of Utah, has been carrying out extensive research on the connection between age, marriage and divorce.

In 2015, he analysed data collected by the National Survey of Family Growth from 2006 to 2010, and concluded you’re less likely to divorce if you get married in your late 20s/early 30s, but that the odds of doing so increase as the age of newlyweds increases to mid-to-late 30s. The data collected looked at couples aged between 15 and 44-years-old. Professor Wolfinger then looked at data from the same organisation, this time collected between 2011 and 2013 and concluded the same; those aged between 28 and 32 when they married had the lowest risk of eventually divorcing.

Perhaps that’s the last window of opportunity before you really get stuck into your career and emerge from any latent quarter-life crisis. By your late 30s, you’ve already developed into the person you’re probably going to be for the rest of your life – and perhaps that means being less open to compromise. According to Bridebook.co.uk, the average age of newlyweds in the UK in 2017 was 30.8 for women and 32.7 for a man.
