The findings of this study show that couples with the exact same age had the highest chances of getting married and staying together. Data collected from 3,0oo recently married and divorced couples concluded that couples with a year age gap between them and their significant other, were 3% more likely to divorce than couples who were the same age. An 18% likelihood of divorce was indicated for couples 5 year between them and a 10 year age difference increased the likelihood of divorce to 39%. Age is a telling factor in the sustainability of a relationship and in today’s society knowing this should help you to make better decisions about who you are dating.
