We often wonder what is the recipe for a successful relationship. According to a new American study, this question particularly depends on the age at which a decision is made to put on the ring.
It’s no secret that at present, half of the couples who say “yes” end up separating. A phenomenon that many studies have already tried to explain. Nowadays, it is the turn of new research initiated by Nicholas H. Wolfinger, sociologist at the University of Utah, to shed light on the problem of divorce.
According to the latter, the risk of separation is linked to the age at which one decides to marry. And presumably, it would not be good to have your finger ring too soon or after the fact.
Therefore, to found this trend, the scientist focused on data collected by the National Survey of Family Growth to establish a relationship between the age of the spouses at the time of their marriage and the risks of divorce. Thus, according to the results, people married when they were under 20 years old have a 32% chance of separating.
