New York, Nov 24 (ANI): The average age that people tie the knot differs from country to country.

An informative map produced by Pricenomics, which uses data provided by the United Nations, shows the average age-by country-at which people get hitched, the Huffington Post reported.

The price comparison website of the data said that the biggest differentiator of marriage age seems to be a country's income, with people in developed countries marrying later.

They said that Nordic countries and Western Europe rank among the highest for mean age at marriage at above 30 years. Afghanistan has one of the lowest at 20.2 years, the map suggests.

In the United States, the average marrying age for women is 26.9 and for men it's 29.8, per a 2011 report by the Pew Research Center.

In all but a dozen or so countries, 80 percent of men and women have been married by age 49, and even more people commit to comparable or similar 'consensual unions,' Priceonomics wrote. (ANI)
