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 percent 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 percent of the vote.

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

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.
