People who marry later are happier
Want to have a happy marriage? One possible option is to wait to get married. A study conducted by Aberta University in Canada found that people who marry later reported having higher levels of self-esteem and happiness than those who married early.
The study was conducted with 405 Canadians aged 18-43 and began in 1984. The analysis shows that the average marriage between Canadians is 25 years for women and 28 years for men.
The researchers say that with this study they have tried to find out what is the best age for marriage. According to family mathematics researcher Matt Johnson, people are moving out of their parents' home later in the day because they prefer to have a steady job and complete their studies.
Participants provided information on marital status, age of first marriage and whether they have already been divorced. They also provided demographic information on the level of schooling achieved and family income at age 43. Subjective well-being was measured with research items related to the level of happiness, presence of depressive symptoms, self-esteem, and life satisfaction.
Volunteers had to respond to a questionnaire with three categories of time for marriage. Among women, those who married after age 27 said they were happier than those who married at age 23. Among men, those who married after the age of 30 were also more satisfied than those who married at the age of 26.
The results show that those who expected to finish their studies and have a more stable financial situation presented less likely to have depressive symptoms in middle age. In addition, people who reported depressive symptoms at age 18 seemed to be more likely to get divorced.

It is very common for some people to view life situations quite negatively, in the belief that they are unlucky and thus lose great growth opportunities, developing a distorted concept about themselves. When at a party, for example, someone arriving does not greet or even give your opinion in a group and do not get feedback, you tend to think that there is a problem or that you behave inappropriately.
