Most people are getting married later and later in life. In 1970 the average age to get married was 23 for men and 20 for women. Back than these were considered appropriate ages to marry the love of your life. However the norm now has taken a leap 6 years down the track to 28 for men and 26 for women. Does this mean that future generations won’t make the same milestones that our generation will be able to reach? How old were you when you got married?
It’s interesting to note that even though the reasonable age to wed has changed, the norm is still that men will be older than women when popping the big question.
Let’s take a look at some wedding photos from the 70s! Look at how styles have changed too!
