Average age of first marriage in the U.S.

Data from U.S. Census Bureau, graphed by NPR, via The Dish, where there are links discussing the phenomenon.


  1. It should be pointed out that this is age at first marriage. The last time I got marriage, I was 50!

  2. Title amended. Tx for the heads-up.

  3. One thing to point out is that both men and women tended to marry at younger ages both during and after World War Two then their parents did. Because of this, the age of first marriage has been rising back to historical patterns, creating an historical unusual pattern.

  4. Really, It Is very useful for us, thanks

    Marriageable age (or marriage age) is the age at which a person is allowed to marry, either as of right or subject to parental or other forms of consent. The age and other requirements vary between countries, but generally it is set at 18, although most jurisdictions allow marriage at slightly younger ages with parental and/or judicial approval, or in case of pregnancy. The marriage age should not be confused with the age of majority or the age of consent, or the actual age at first marriage in a particular society.
