How long does the average marriage last?

You may think that divorce statistics are the last thing you'll want to look at before you tie the knot. After all, when we walk down the aisle and say our solemn vows to our spouse, we never dream that one day our marriage may end in a bitter divorce - right?
But the truth is, divorce statistics aren't as scary as everybody makes them out to be! We are all taught that marriage is a 50/50 game of chance, but that simply isn't so.
The real statistics of divorce (in the United States) is somewhere between 42-45%. I know, I know. That still doesn't sound great. But think of it this way, that means you are 55-58% likely to succeed in your marriage!
Remember that a marriage is about more than statistics! I found this great article about the key ingredient to a lasting marriage that I think you'll really like!
