Will your marriage end in divorce? (Statistically speaking)

Life has been insanely chaotic lately, and unfortunately my blog writing frequency has suffered as a result. I could not go more than two weeks in a row without posting anything though…I’m trying really hard to keep the few routines I’ve managed to stick to! Now, I’m travelling for work, with little time and lacking inspiration to write, when I suddenly remembered a dear friend basically handed me a blog post last week. She emailed me this link to an interactive graph created by a nerdy statistician named Nathan Yau of FlowingData, where you can calculate the probability of different demographics’ likelihood for divorce. Or, as I like to keep a positive spin…the probability of staying married (if you take the inverse of the chart, of course).

Enjoy! And in lieu of my lack of commentary, please feel free to share your comments with me about this article below! (Now I’m going to FaceTime Sven before I pass out in my hotel room 😴.)
