Age at first marriage

This is an incomplete list of the average ages of people when they first marry in various countries. This list is current (from year 2000 or later), and does not treat the topic in history.

Because the age distribution of the marriageable population is skewed,[1] the median age is a more precise representation of the average age. However, for most reporting sources, only the mean ages are given.
