Wedding bells will be ringing soon for many folks and we think when we are saying those vows--that we will be with that person the rest of our lives.  I've found from personal experience it doesn't always work out that way.  So---one thought is---what IS the best age to get married?   Good question---now how about an answer!

According to a recent government report, more Americans are getting married later in life than ever.

But, does the decision to postpone marriage lead to happiness?

What is the best age to get married?

Experts and researchers have found that couples have the best odds of making it in the long haul if they wait until at least the age of 25 to get married. This is because education and money start working for the couple – and not against them.

Educated women feel more confident about who they are – and are less willing to settle for a man who doesn’t meet their standards.

There’s also less incentive for educated women to rush into marriage because they’re seeking financial security from a man.

All of this suggests that marrying later in life is generally better than jumping in as a teenager. (
