If you happen to take the marriage plunge between the ages of 25 and 34, consider yourself lucky: according to Nicholas H. Wolfinger, a University of Utah psychologist, you have the lowest risk of divorce.
You probably already know that people who marry as teens face the highest risk of divorce (just think of your high school sweetheart). So it makes sense to get married older, as you're more financially and emotionally stable. Which is true ... up to a point.
“My data analysis shows that prior to age 32 or so, each additional year of age at marriage reduces the odds of divorce by 11 percent," Wolfinger writes in a post for Family Studies. "However, after that, the odds of divorce increase by 5 percent per year.”
