Millennials are marrying much later than their parents but new research has suggested the age at which the best marriages are made.

Researchers at the University of Utah suggest that tying the knot between the age of 28 and 32 is the recipe for a successful partnership.

The study analysed more than 10,000 divorced couples and quizzed them on the breakdown of their relationships. According to the research, the longest-lasting marriages occurred between those who married after turning 28 and before the eve of their 33rd birthday.

Partners who wed between those birthdays were  less likely to split within the first five years, according to the study.

Meanwhile, a recent study also found that partner’s are more likely to cheat ahead of a significant birthday.

A new study conducted by adulterer's website IllicitEncounters.com shows the average person has an affair at the age of 39 as people tend to cheat when they're in an age ending in 9 as they see themselves at a turning point in their lives.

It starts at 19 and continues to 29, 49 and 59.

A spokesperson for the site said: "Our research shows that some people cheat to get their partner’s attention.

If their partner’s a workaholic or unavailable to them, being caught with someone else is a way of saying: ‘Hey, if you love me, pay attention to me!'

"Payback cheating is also common. If you’ve cheated in the past or done something else to hurt your partner, they might retaliate to get even."
