This Is The Perfect Age Gap In A Relationship, According To A New Study
Does this sound right to you?
One of the main factors in the downfall of a marriage is, perhaps unsurprisingly, the age gap between partners.
According to a recent study by Andrew Francis and Hugo Mialon, professors in the Department of Economics at Emory University in Atlanta, the bigger the age difference in a marriage is the more likely it is to end in divorce.
The researchers looked at 3,000 people in their study and found that a five-year age gap means couples are 18% more likely to divorce, rising to 39% for a 10-year age difference, and rising again to a staggering 95% for a 20-year age gap.
The best possible age gap was found to be just one year, with a 3% chance of the marriage ending in the divorce.
