I’ve said the same thing about military divorce rates.  The military does not make you get divorced.  There is a demographic in there of people who marry and divorce over and over while in the military and it inflates the percentage.  Even then, the rate is actually LOWER than the national average!

Oh, but I’m 24 and he’s 26 so I’m 1/4 and he’s 2/4. But we’re pretty much there with the ones that don’t count so I’m pretty confident we can make it slide ๐Ÿ˜‰

We’re both over 25, college-educated, both sets of parents are still married and by the time we get married, it’ll be 1 month shy of our 3 yr annivesary (close enough for me!!).

YAY!!

Statistics mean nothing to the individual.

We are 3/4. His parents aren’t together anymore, but I think that just made him want to work on our relationship more. He saw what it did to his family, and he told me that he would do anything he can to make sure we never end up like that. We are both in college now, something neither one of us had planned on before we got together, but we wanted to make sure that we made a better life for ourselves and our future family.

Thank you for sharing VirginiaMarie! Haha, I really have no idea why people are so excited to share the 50% statistic with me when they find out I’m engaged, but now I have a comeback instead of mumbling something like “Yes I know But we love each other..”
