Happy Wedding Wednesday!
I read an article from the WSJ yesterday (thanks to my hubby for sending it my way!, titled “Delayed Development: 20-Somethings Blame the Brain“. The article discusses brain development and it’s effects on 20-somethings. The author brought up points about parents being worried about their 20-something children still living at home, still trying out professions, not finding a partner, and so on. The advice – not to worry! Our brains our not fully developed until our late 20s. This may even help explain why we’re waiting a bit to get married!
“As recently as the 1960s, the average age of first marriage for women in the U.S. was 20, and men 22. Today, the average is 26 for women and 28 for men.”
The Knot found average ages to be even higher: 29 for women and 30 for men!
No matter your age we hope you’re having a great wedding season!
