The national average marrying age, according to The Knot, is 29 for brides and 31 for grooms, which is still relatively “old” compared to past averages.
“Couples [nationwide] are waiting a little bit later in life to make this huge decision,” says Kristen Maxwell Cooper, executive editor at The Knot.
Still, the US Census reported that in 2014, the average age of brides was 31, and 33 for grooms. A big factor of this can be attributed to couples living together before they get married.
Even if you've never spent time on a dating website, the odds are good that some of your friends have.
Roughly 42% of Americans know someone who dates online and more and more couples’ love stories start from the click of a mouse.
Around 38% of those who are currently single and looking reported using dating websites or apps to meet potential mates.
