Apparently if you want your marriage to last, you need to track someone down who’s the EXACT same age as you . . . or else you’re DOOMED. Researchers at Emory University in Atlanta just released a study that found the bigger the age gap, the more likely you are to get divorced. Check this out . . .
Couples with a 30-year age difference are 172% more likely to get divorced.
Couples with a 20-year age difference are 95% more likely to get divorced.
Couples with a 10-year age difference are 39% more likely to get divorced.
Couples with a five-year age difference are 18% more likely to get divorced.
And couples with just a ONE-year age difference are 3% more likely to get divorced.
If you’re wondering . . . most couples DO have an age difference. In the average married couple worldwide, the man is 2.4 years older than the woman . . . only 13% of married couples are the same age. Are you doomed, or in the clear?
