Invest in your marriage, it will pay off. Because the longer you are with your partner, the lower the chance of a divorce
One study questions the new “trend” that more and more older couples are separating or divorcing. Because the statistics that were worked out for the wedding foundation “think-tank” show that the longer a couple is together, the less likely they are to separate . The first decade of marriage is the hardest to get through. While one in four couples split up for newlyweds, only one in 1,500 couples get divorced for married couples who reach their golden wedding anniversary.

After 50 years, only one pair out of 1,500 can be divorced.
