A study has revealed the chances of a couple getting divorced grow as the age gap between them becomes wider, an online report by The Atlantic stated on November 9.
The study evaluated the information from more than 3,000 polled Americans who were recently married and divorced. It found that, compared to same-aged pairs, couples who have a one-year age difference have a 3% higher chance of getting divorced. From there, the likelihood of divorce only increases. Couples who had a 15-year and a 30-year age gap were 18% and 39% more likely to split, respectively. The report stated that differences in age may result in differences in life experiences, tastes, and cultural reference points.

An online report published by Bloomberg News on Tuesday, February 18 revealed that a higher divorce rate in the country is indicative of a favorable economy.
Moody’s Analytics Inc. chief economist Mark Zandi believes the number of couples deciding to get a divorce is expected to increase robustly as the economy gets better. Professor Abdur Chowdhurry of Marquette University in Milwaukee also stated that because home prices are starting to rise, couples who have been putting off getting a divorce might consider it again.
