Marriageable age (or marriage age) is the minimum age at which a person is allowed by law to marry , either as a right or subject to parental, judicial or other forms of approval. Age and other prerequisites to marriage vary between jurisdictions, but in the vast majority of jurisdictions

Yep here people get married when they're financially stable and that doesn't happen usually until you are 30ish. Men and women will keep looking for other people when they're in a relationship, especially after getting married .

The very oldest to get married are in Bulgaria at 34, while the youngest are in Niger at almost 21.

What does that average number actually mean?

It is not, as you might expect, the expected marriage age for a person born today or the average of all married people, but rather what statisticians call a “singulate mean” (pdf)—a calculation similar to what is used for life expectancy.

Basically, the researchers look at the likelihood of people alive today being married at every age from 15 to 54.

They then use that to estimate an average for the population at this very moment.

Marriage age is highly correlated with wealth.

People in poorer countries like Malawi and Laos tend get married earlier than in richer countries like Norway and Singapore.

As a country gets richer, the population tends to starts marrying later.

For example, the average marriage age in China rose from just 22 for women and 24 for men in 1990, to 25 and 27 respectively in 2016—a period when the country experienced rapid economic growth.

Not only does the age of marriage tend to get higher with more wealth, the age difference between men and women also declines.

The difference in average age of marriage for men and women is less than 2 years in rich countries like Japan, Australia, and the US, but over 6 years in poorer Cameroon and Morocco.

Economics don’t explain everything, though.

The Netherlands and Austria have similar GDP per capita, but people in the Netherlands get married about five years later, and the average marriage age for women and men is a year closer.

Demographic research suggests that, beyond income, education level and share of people who live in cities are important determinants of marriage age.

And some of the difference is a matter of local culture and history, not easily explained by statistics.
