MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Researchers say they’ve figured out the right time to tie to knot. Sociologists at the University of Utah say people should get married between the ages of 28 and 32.

Past studies showed that waiting longer to get hitched usually led to more stability, but this new research found that the odds of divorce decline significantly between the ages of 28 and 32.

But then for each year after 32, the chance of divorce goes up about 5 percent.

The thought there is that, after that age, people start to become set in their ways when it comes to their habits, lifestyle and goals.

On a stunningly related note, a separate study using data from the streaming service Spotify found that people stop actively seeking out new music at age 33.

So, in short, if you’re older than 32 years old right now and not married, just go ahead and cue up that oldies record again.
