When Do Americans Marry? The Changing Age at First Marriage

Previous Previous Next Next
Description
As you can see, the average age of first-time brides and grooms declined from 1890 to about 1950. In 1890, the typical first-time bride was 22, but by 1950, she had just left her teens. For about twenty years, there was little change. Then in 1970, the average age took a sharp turn upward, and today’s average first-time bride and groom are older than at any other time in U.S. history.
