That is a statistic spitefully skewed by most serial divorcees except Liz Taylor.

LMAO...hence the reason I'm not married.

I thought it was 1 in 2. :)

I wonder if that is a cumulative statistic or a serial one?

For example, if your chances of divorce are one in three, are your chances of becoming twice divorced one in nine, thrice - one in twenty-seven etc. If so, there may be an argument for marrying again based on cumulative odds.

On other hand, if it remains one in three the second time round we're buggered. But if that is the case, surely your best bet is to marry a third time. Statistically speaking.

Ahem. I'll shut up now.

I don't know where you got the one in three number. In the US it's just under half - used to be just over half but then people quit getting married and started shacking up instead. If it's 1:3 in the UK, then I'm rather impressed at the number of people willing to keep their commitments

hey people, it's a wedding day card, which is why it's more positive. As it is I think in the UK it's more like 1 in 2.5, but that doesn't scan as well.

'Scan' - listen to me, what a cunt.
