Women dream of bringing their wedding planning
to fruition younger, according to a survey by More magazine.
This year's marriage and wedding survey has revealed that 78 per cent of young women dream of tying the knot and most want be in their wedding dress
by the time they're 26.
Despite being surrounded by stories of celebrity scandals and divorce, young women have not lost their faith in the sanctity of marriage. In fact, 42 per cent would put it before their careers.
Editor of More magazine Chantelle Horton explained that young women "realise that most celebrity marriages have the extra pressures of being in the limelight, spending lots of time apart and temptation everywhere that most normal relationships don't have to contend with".
It's looking good for life-long romance as figures from the Office for National Statistics show that the divorce rate is the lowest it has been since 1979 and the More survey has revealed that eight out of ten women think marriage should be for life.
