Czech women dating marriage
The number of marriages shows a long-term decreasing trend. While there were 52–53 thousand marriages a year at the beginning of the 21st century, there were 43.5 thousand in 2013, which was the lowest figure in the history of Czech demographic statistics.The crude marriage rate (number of marriages per 1 000 inhabitants) fell from 5.4‰ to 4.1‰ between 20.
The total fertility rate reached its minimum value (slightly above 1.1) at the turn of the 21st century, but it partly reflected a significant shift of motherhood to a later age.
According to the 2011 Population and Housing Census results more than half (52.8 %) of the Czech population aged 20 and over were married.
Exactly a quarter of the population were single (never married or in a registered partnership), while divorced people made up 12.8 % and widowed persons accounted for 9.1 % of the Czech population.
Mean age at first marriage increased by almost 4 years between 20 for both men and women.
In 2013 the mean age at first marriage was 31.3 for grooms (27.6 in 2000) and 28.5 for brides (24.6 in 2000).
