Number of marriages is growing again in Albania

 The total number of weddings in Albania in 2018 has returned to rise (+ 2%) after the gradual decline between 2016 and 2017. The average age of the marriage is also declining.

During 2018 the marriages in Albanians recorded a growing trend, as evidenced by the latest publication of the National Institute of Statistics (INSTAT).

Last year, there were a total of 23,104 weddings, about 2% more than the previous year when the total number of marriages had halted to a total of 22,641. The peak of marriages over the past ten years was recorded in 2009, with a total of 26,174.

Another major change made during 2018 is the decline in the average of the marriage age, unlike the trend in recent years.

As for women, according to Instat data, more than 53% were married within the 24 years of age last year; which is up to 80.5% when considered as age limit of 29 years. This means that the average marriage age for women in 2018 was 25.5 years, down from 26.5 in the previous year.

However, despite this, the average marriage age for women continues to be about two years older than the one recorded until 2013 (ie 24 years).

Even for men, the average age has declined, respects that of the previous year (over 31 years): 54.6% of them in 2018 were 29 years old, while 82.4 % falls in the age group of 34, for a total average of 30.2 years.

The publication of ISA includes also the early marriages in the age group of 15-19 years. The number of girls who got married in 2018 before the age of 24 has been lowered on what was recorded in 2017.

A very low value that increases if you consider married girls between eighteen (9.2% of the total) and 19 years (7% of the total). For men, in 2018,  were not recorded marriages under 18, while the percentage between 18 and 19 years-old was less than 1%.
