Survey shows that Irish people think the best age to get married at is between 30-33

For anyone you know that's in this age category.

When it's right, it's right.

For every conversation at a wedding when an in-law comes up to you and says 'so, when will we be at your wedding?' you've our permission to stick their head in the cake.

Ok, that might cause a bit of a family scene but hey, it's a wedding. These things are to be expected.

You might hate the idea of marriage, you might love it. Each to their own.

However, a recent survey by Bannon Jewellers piqued our interest because 1,000 members of the Irish public were asked a simple question - ‘What age do you think people should get married at?’

Of course, the right answer is whenever they want but nearly 34% of respondents felt that the best age to get married was between 30 and 33.

This was followed closely by 25 to 29, which received 24.5% of the vote.

15% of those surveyed felt that people shouldn't get married at all. Of this subsection, men responded ‘never’ more than women (19% vs 11%).

Those participants who are aged between 18-24 felt that that the age people should get married at is 18-24, more so than any other age group.

Here's a graph which indicates how the voting was categorised and a full breakdown of the data can be found here.
