Scary Statistics On Divorce

Hi there,

Almost everyone would love to know before marrying, whether or not they will end up divorced, if only to avoid the need for a prenup.  Anneli Ruffus has written a very interesting compilation of research pieces for The Daily Beast on “15 Ways to Predict Divorce.”

I have always believed that parents of children with disabilities have a much higher divorce rate and now there seems to be research that indicates that parents of twins are also at risk.

In addition to all the other life altering issues they face, military families have a much higher risk of divorce as well.

And finally, here is a tacky piece on the Getty divorce. The reason all of the personal financial and spending material was in the court record available for the writer to find, was that Mrs. Getty apparently was trying to set out not only his bad behavior but their lifestyle, in order to obtain the support she wanted.

Best,

Nancy
