Time Magazine Cites Research by Economics Professor Leher in Article on Marriage

A Time Magazine article quotes research by LAS Professor Evelyn Leher, of the department of economics, in an article about the relationship between age and the success of marriage.

In fact, Lehrer’s analysis of longitudinal data shows that for every year a woman waits to get married, right up until her early 30s, she reduces her chances of divorce. It’s possible that a woman may also be reducing her chances of marriage, but Lehrer’s research suggests later marriages, while less conventional, may be more robust."
