His findings? Couples should get hitched between the ages of 28 and 32, as this age window led to a lower divorce rate.
"The odds of divorce decline as you age from your teenage years through your late twenties and early thirties...Thereafter, the chances of divorce go up again as you move into your late thirties and early forties," he wrote.
But not everyone agrees. Leading UK marital therapist Andrew G Marshall told The Independent that he believes searching for the perfect age for marriage is a case of wishful thinking.
"I think the best age to get married is when you’re both ready and want to do it. Marriage is a wonderful institution. Because living together is a private arrangement, whereas getting married is a public one: it brings your partner into your family, and provides them with more loving support," he said.
