The current study is exploratory in nature intending to study the role of the age of getting married on women’s happiness and marital satisfaction. Using the snowball sampling method, a sample of 176 women was selected. The participants were assessed on happiness and marital satisfaction measures using the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire and Revised Dyadic Adjustment Scale. The findings revealed that there is no association between the age of getting married and a woman’s happiness and marital satisfaction as women above 35 who got married before or after 25 years of age are equally happily and maritally satisfied. Happiness and satisfaction are positively correlated. The study also reveals that there is no significant difference between unmarried and married women in the age group of 18-25 on the scale of happiness.
