Divorce and African celebs are fast becoming joined together just like the meme of President Zuma’s fingers. It is no longer a big deal that African celebs are filing for divorce because it is also becoming very popular in our communities. What if there is a way to predict who will get a divorce?
Well, imagine no more as there is now a way to predict if you will likely get a divorce.
TIME reported that women who wait until after the age of 26 to get married have the best shot at staying together longer; it added that women who get married for the first time while they’re very young or over 45 are more likely to see their union end in a divorce than others.
here are higher divorce rates among women who were between 15 and 20 years old when they first tied the knot, according to Bureau of Labor figures and data from the American Community Survey, analyzed by University of Maryland sociologist Philip N. Cohen. On average, those marriages—known in the vernacular as “starter marriages”—last between 1 and 10 years.
Another study in 2015 suggests that the best ages for people to enter a long and successful marriage is between 28 and 32.
