Overall, Americans tend to move pretty quickly: nearly half of all engagements occur two years or less into a relationship.
Nearly everyone said they got married to show they were committed to their partner, while very few cited social pressure, financial reasons, and convenience—which used to be reasons for getting hitched, unfortunately.
Married couples also think their choice was a good one—95 percent say they would recommend marriage to other people and 85 percent say it makes a relationship stronger.
It seems that this is at least in part driven by a much higher percentage of 35 year old men getting engaged in New York than 35 year old women.
A diamond is forever, but an expensive engagement ring means the marriage might not last that long. Men are 50 percent more likely to end up divorced when they said their partner's looks were important in their decision to get married, and women are 60 percent more likely to end up divorced when they cared about their partner’s wealth, compared to people who said they cared about neither. Honeymoons decrease the chances of divorce by 41 percent.* * *Part of the study echoes what we already know about marriage: That it's increasingly for rich people—who make a lot and can afford honeymoons.
These findings come courtesy of uk, a wedding planning website in the U. For their survey, the website polled 4,000 recently married couples and asked, among other things, how long they had been in a relationship before they tied the knot. The average couple ends up spending 3.5 years living together before saying “I do” and of couples go this route (you know, just in case your parents give you sh*t about it): 89 percent live together in some form before they get married.
People are also waiting longer to get married, which isn’t exactly a shocker.After compiling these responses, we sorted them by geographic region (West, Midwest, South, and Northeast).We determined that the median engagement age in the United States is 27.2 years for women, and 28.7 years for men -- a 1.5 year difference.While there is little variation in female engagement age in the West, Midwest and South, women in the Northeast get engaged slightly later: there is nearly a one year differential between them (27.8 years) and women in the South (26.9 years).This is primarily driven by New York and Pennsylvania, where our average respondent’s engagement age hovered around 28 years old.On average, women (27.2 years) tend to be 1.5 years younger than their partner (28.7 years) at the time of engagement.About 2.2% of Americans get engaged under the age of 20, 74% in their 20s, 15% in their mid-30s (30-34), and about 8% at the age of 35 or older.Women on average are getting married at almost 31 years old, while men are getting married at nearly 33 years old.(Compare that with 22.6 years old for women and 24.6 years old for men in 1971.) Most couples said they’ve also had two serious relationships before they meet The One.Men in the Northeast present a similar case, with nearly 10% less engagements below age 24.In the West, the relatively high percentage of younger engagements might be partially explained by Utah, where 60% of the population are of the Mormon faith.
