Scientific data are there to support it so rule out the possibility this is made to cheer up lonesome singles out there.  The prominent sociologist at the University of Utah Nicolas Wolfinger has made quite interesting findings in his data analysis from the National Survey of Family and Households.

It is known information that people who married younger have more tendencies to divorce. To start with, people who are wed at 20 are twice more likely to do this than those who are married at 25. Wolfinger made an analogy in this study: having your high school love as your husband or wife is exciting particularly if you are still young. However, first love also comes with lack of confidence, covetousness and various frightened doubts in the future. Having these negative traits with someone you live with under the same roof is the perfect ingredient for divorce.

Marriage at 33

However, it does not mean that marrying beyond 33 is good either. “The kinds of people who wait till their thirties to get married may be the kinds of people who aren’t predisposed toward doing well in their marriages,” Wolfinger emphasizes in his important investigation.

“Maybe some of the thirty-something who would have made good spouses now feel perfectly comfortable being single, or living with partners out of wedlock,” He added.
