According to a survey by Bridebook of 4,000 newly married couples, the average couple spends around 4.9 years together before they promise each other eternal fidelity. We also spend less on an engagement ring and originality comes first. The survey also shows that we mainly choose to marry at a slightly older age compared to our previous generation. For women that is around 30.8 years and men are often 32.7 years to be precise.

Positive figures

The vast majority (91%) say they marry to confirm their love for each other, when a small number (2%) say that social pressure drives them into marriage. Also financial reasons (2%) and because it is convenient (2%) are some reasons why couples put the ring around their finger. Conclusion: "Marriages are becoming stronger than ever before, relationships are happier and couples are more independent and determined in their choice," said Hamish Shephard, founder of Bridebook.
