Average age at marriage in Spain in 2017, by autonomous community and gender

Average age at marriage in Spain in 2017, by autonomous community and gender

by Fernando Forte, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Average age at marriage in Spain in 2017, by autonomous community and gender The mean age at first marriage in Spain was, along with Sweden, one of the highest in the European Union. Based on this setup, it is no wonder that the Spanish autonomous communities featured quite elevated numbers - particularly in the Canary Islands, where the average age at first marriage stood at 40 years old for men and nearly 37 for women in 2017.
Easy come easy go

Marriage might be undergoing a declining popularity among Spaniards, or so it would seem by its national (heterosexual) marriage figures, which have experienced a slight decrease over the last years. This information translates into a national average of nearly 3.7 marriages per 1,000 inhabitants, with the region of Ceuta recording the highest numbers on the list of marriage rate in Spain. On top of that, Spain also appears at the top of the list of the highest divorce rates in Europe, with nearly 58 divorces per 100 marriages carried out in this country.

Ageing: a common problem across the continent

The age at first marriage is not the only digit that is on the rise in Spain. Data related to age in the Mediterranean country essentially behave in a similar fashion as the rest of its European counterparts, whose population is also slowly but surely getting older.
