More people get married in Romania in 2015, but number of divorces also up

More than 125,000 marriages were registered in Romania in 2015, which represents a 6.2% increase over the previous year, according to data from the National Statistics Institute INS, cited by local Agerpres.

The number of marriages went up in both urban and rural areas. Most of them (18.2% of the total) were concluded between men and women from the 25-29 age group, followed by those from the 20-24 age group (14.3%).

However, on average, women from urban areas marry at an older age than those from the countryside. Thus, in 2015, almost 40% of the women who got married in urban areas were from the 25-29 age group, while 36% of the women who got married in rural areas were from the 20-24 age group.

INS data also shows that the average age at which Romanians get married has also increased last year, for both women and men. In women’s case, the average age was 29.1 years, while for men the age was 32.5 years.

The number of divorces also increased by 15.9% year-on-year in 2015, to 31,527. The divorce rate went up from 1.22 divorces per 1,000 inhabitants in 2014 to 1.42 divorces per 1,000 inhabitants last year.
