Population Trends - The age difference at marriage in England and Wales: a century of patterns and trends (Pdf 153Kb)
In the last 100 years the mean age difference at marriage in England and Wales has fluctuated in the range 2–3 years, but without exhibiting any long-run trend. Nevertheless, an age gap of 2–3 years is not typical. A 1-year gap is the most common in recent years and there is a good deal of variation between couples. Marriage partners are closer in age than would be predicted if men and women were matched at random by age. There is little evidence that the age difference is governed by strong social norms. Some explanations for diversity and change in the age difference are discussed.

Population Trends - Changes in the distribution of marital age differences in England and Wales, 1963 to 1998 (Pdf 111Kb)
Assumptions about the ‘typical’ age gap between spouses underlie much social policy (e.g. the fi ve-year difference in men’s and women’s state pension ages). In order to test the basis for these assumptions, detailed marriage registration statistics were obtained for 1963 and 1998, for England and Wales. Age differences between spouses were calculated and analysed by year, age at marriage and previous marital status. The median age gap hardly changed between 1963 and 1998 but this concealed considerable increase in the proportion of marriages where the man was younger than the woman or – to a lesser extent – where the man was six or more years older.
