My younger son will be confirmed into the Catholic church on 31st of May at the age of 12. I think within the Catholic and Protestant traditions the age of Confirmation seems to swing from between 12 to 15 years old.

In the Protestant Church of the Netherlands (and its predecessors) it has always been 18 years old - after a year of confirmation cathechesis (which takes place after several years of general cathechesis). Nowadays it is truly a personal choice. For example, king Willem-Alexander waited until his late 20s and we don't know whether his brothers were ever confirmed.

N.B. Confirmation is called 'Confession of Faith' (geloofsbelijdenis).

Definitely they were in every Christian rite you have to be confirmed (to be mature Christian) to wed in a Church (Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle were confirmed shortly before their respective weddings)

The Church of Sweden doesn't require you to be confirmed to get married.

That is quite a bit older than most Christian denominations. What is the general age for Confirmation in Sweden?

Most of those that get confirmed do so aged 15.
