91 and 92 years old – age of the oldest groom and bride marrying in Mogilev

The oldest groom and bride getting married in Mogilev were 91 and 92 years old, Galina Onoshko, head of Mogilev city executive committee’s registry office, told.

Future spouses have become more accountable for making decision about marrying. According to the data for the period of January-October 2012, the average age of newlyweds made up 22-26. The youngest bride was 17 years old, while the youngest groom was 18.

Among the mesalliances registered, the largest disparities in age were 42 years (a groom was older) and 22 (a bride was older).

2,866 couples got married in Mogilev in January-October 2012 (comparing with 3,196 within the respective period of the previous year). A leap year has likely become a major reason in decreasing the number of marriages, Galina Onoshko supposed. By the way, August 4 and September 15 were the days of wedding booms – 68 couples got married.

Within a ten-month period 181 international marriages were registered at Mogilev office. The majority of grooms were from Russia, the Ukraine, Israel, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan. Some of them came from Algeria, Australia, China.

There are few couples who want to get married on December 12, 2012 (12.12.12). So far there are five of them. Last year 56 couples entered into a marriage on the symbolic data of November 11, 2011 (11.11.11); four of them have already got divorced.
