Weddings spike to reach 30 year high

The number of weddings in 2019 rose to a level not seen in nearly 30 years according to the latest data of the Central Statistics Office.

The Office said in a statement relayed to MTI that more people got married by the end of September 2019 than in all of 2018.

Following a decline in marriages beginning in the mid-1970s, the number of weddings rose by nearly 50% between 2010 and 2016.

The average age for men to marry was 36.6 and for women was 33.5.
