I am interested in not the mean but rather in the median. So far, I have had the highest difficulty in attaining any information on this matter for the United Kingdom or Great Britain. Thankfully, the statistics for this are available for the United States from the late 19th century onwards but not for any European country.
For the 1860s, it is well known that the median age for the UK is around 23.5. However, I have not come across any data for the period onwards.
It would be extremely appreciated if someone could provide any information on this matter.
For example, did women marry later in the UK than the US in the 1940s and 1950s? What about nations like Belgium, Holland and West Germany? In general, it would be appreciated if someone confirmed whether (white) women in the US married later or earlier than those in Western European countries generally in the early and mid 20th century.
