Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes people get married too young, but how do you know when age is a factor when it comes to marriage?  Cupid has some tips:

2. Independent: You have to determine if you are at that age where you know who you are as a person outside of a relationship.  For some, that age may be 19, but for others it could be 35.  If you are happy alone, you can be happy with someone else.

3. Divorce: According to studies, the divorce rates are lesser for those who marry later in life.  When you marry later in life, you’re more like to be stable in all aspects of life which makes for a stable marriage.  Ultimately, though, when you know someone’s the one, you just know.
