Ladies, please sit down for this one: A new study revealed that the “right” time to get married is between the ages of 28 to 32, apparently.

The study, published by the pro-marriage Institute of Family Studies, suggests that if you get married between that age range the odds of divorcing minimizes. Basically, the longer you wait, the more screwed you will be. Oh, please!

“The odds of divorce decline as you age from your teenage years through your late twenties and early thirties,” Nick Wolfinger, said the study's author. “Thereafter, the chances of divorce go up again as you move into your late thirties and early forties.”

And, just for laughs, check out this data: For each year after 32, the chance of divorce goes up about 5 percent.

He goes on to say: “The kinds of people who wait till their thirties to get married may be the kinds of people who aren’t predisposed toward doing well in their marriages.”

Excuse, us, come again? So does that mean we are wiser at a younger age. Interesting! That’s a new revelation we’ve never heard of. We always assumed with age comes wisdom, but what do we know.

Ladies, and gentlemen, do yourself the favor and stop formulating your lives around bogus studies conducted by an institution that is all about encouraging marriage, as if that’s the only way to live.
