This is a
list of countries by age at first marriage. This list is current (from the most recent surveys) and does not treat the topic in history.
Because the age distribution of people at first marriage is
skewed with a longer tail towards older ages, the majority of people marry before the  average age of first marriage. The median age is a more precise representation of when the majority of people marry, however, for most reporting sources, only the average age at marriage is reported.
Americas [ edit ]
Average age at first marriage. Darker is younger
Oceania [ edit ]
Note: the reported age for these countries is the
median, not the mean (average). All countries in italics have their data in the mean and not the median.
