New Marriage Statistics

By Azure Nelson, Published Sep 30, 2009

Here’s some great news. You know all those depressing statistics about how 50% of all marriages end in divorce, check this out. 76% of people who marry, only marry once! Only 20% of Americans have been married more than once. So, while 50% of marriages end in divorce, if you’ve never been married before than your odds are much, much better. Let’s put that in celebrity terms, Jennifer Lopez has been married three times. Bill Cosby has been married once. But, if you average them together, then half of all marriages end in divorce! (Let’s not talk about how hard it was to find a Hollywood person who had only been married once.) What do you think, is this the first time Jennifer Lopez and Bill Cosby have been mentioned in the same blog post anywhere on the web?
