Study: 92% of Newly Married People Lived Together Before Marriage
Posted on April 27, 2011The excitement around the Royal Wedding inspired eHarmony UK to survey over 1,000 married couples on all different aspects of married life. Back when Prince Charles and Princess Diana were newlyweds the average age for marriage was 24 for women and 22 for men. But, as they near their 30s, Prince William and Kate Middleton now represent the average age of current newly weds.
The study also found that 92% of newlyweds now live together before marriage - a huge jump from just 10% in the previous generation. 50% of newlyweds also said they took a break from being a couple at some point before they were married.
