I have noticed this too. I try to look at How long did the couple date before getting married? How long was the couple married before having children? Did the couple rush into an engagement? Did the couple have an unexpected pregnancy and were wed because of the unexpected pregnancy? Does the couple have financial or legal trouble?

I once read in a book on Divorce that:

There is a 75% chance of divorce if: A couple is married with-in two year of meeting and has 1 or more children with-in 5 years of marriage.  That is a high probability/rate of divorce.

We just found out that my FH – BIL has an extensive criminal record. We found out online and are still in shock. He has assaults on his record, as recently as last Sept. and has 3 sons… one with one lady and two with his sister. They got married with-in two years, bought a newer home, she had 2 babies, now a stay at home mom, I am sure this is so stressful for everyone involved, but I am staying completely far away from any of that negativity.

It’s… probably a coincidence?

…I never heard that any animal in the chinese zodiac is associated with negative outcomes for everyone.

Usually the person is said to have more challenges in the year of their own animal, and they do best in the years of their animal “friends” (every animal has at least 2 other animal friends).

Just because a snake sounds like a bad thing in our culture doesn’t make it so! Some European wedding bands were snake shaped because the snake represented eternity to those cultures.

There is also a chinese zodiac year of the rat, you know 🙂
