Statistics..Statistics

It's not bad enough that we are the country of a baby every 23 seconds , we now have a divorce every 6 minutes. A third of Egyptian marriages apparently fail in their first year. Not as bad as the US divorce rates, but we are getting there.

Speaking of the US divorce rate though, since it's 50% now, why even bother with waiting for a while before getting married and wasting all that time being sure first? I mean, whether your marry someone you've loved for years, or one you picked off the street, you have, statistically speaking, equal chances of success or failure. No?

  3. So that gives time for 28 babies before the divorce. Seems like plenty to me. ;-)

  4. Actually, SM, there’s a certain percentage of Americans that marry and divorce several times over. They do inflate the statistics a bit.
