Average length of dating before marriage
Apparently, most couples are dating for much longer than they used to before walking down the aisle, according to a new 4,000-person survey from the wedding planning app and website Bridebook.In fact, the average bride and groom in the UK date for 4.9 years before getting married.
Divorce rates will likely decline for the foreseeable future, too.
"Marriages are becoming stronger than ever, relationships happier and more committed than ever, and couples more independent and consensual in their decisions than ever," Bridebook founder Hamish Shephard said.
We are constantly reminded of the pressures of getting married, settling down and starting a family.
Today's bride and groom are eight years older than the average couple who got married in 1971.
Just 46 years ago, brides were around 22.6 years old, and now they're 30.8.Or maybe couples that have modest rings and receptions feel that their boundless love is a celebration enough.Maybe this is all being thrown by some hidden Kardashian variable that none of us has uncovered yet.It's no secret that marriage traditions are changing.
