Getting Married on Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is coming up. Some couples pick that day to get married. It may seem like a good idea. But you may want to rethink it.
Economists at the University of Melbourne tracked a million couples. They found that 11% of the people who got married on Valentine’s Day were divorced after five years and 21% were divorced after nine years. This compared unfavorably to couples who were married on ordinary dates.
Other holidays and special number dates like January 2nd, 2003 (1/2/03) also resulted in higher divorce rates.
