Italy: marriage rate 2002-2017

Marriage rate in Italy from 2002 to 2017 (per 1,000 inhabitants)

by Statista Research Department, last edited May 13, 2019
Italy: marriage rate 2002-2017 Every year less and less Italians decide to walk down the aisle and join in the wedlock with their other half. In 2017, the country registered about 3.1 marriages per thousand individuals, roughly 1.2 unions less in comparison with the figures from a decade ago. The regions with the highest marriage rates in the country were Sicily and Calabria – in the year considered, about four couples per every 1,000 inhabitants celebrated a wedding.
Brides and grooms always older

Italians postpone their decision of tying the knot to a later date. Back in the 1990s, the average age of the Italian bride at marriage was of 26.8 years, whereas in 2017 the average age was of about 31 years.

Various reasons of not getting married

There are different motives why people decide not to get married. When asked about the reason why they didn’t get married, the majority of Italian singles replied, that they did not find the right person. On the other hand, about 17 percent of individuals cohabiting together with their partner stated that they don’t believe in marriage, whereas roughly one-fourth of the respondents never felt the need to do it.
