will your marriage last?

Political Calculations purports to offer a calculation for if your marriage will last. I couldn’t get it to work, although that may be because I put in my mother’s information and the calculator refuses to believe someone could get married at 15. But she did. And she’s been married 46 years to the same guy. My MIL got married at 16 and she’s been married to the same guy for 47 years. I got married at 26 and I’ve been married to the same guy for 18 years.

I figure we’ll see 45 as well. Assuming we both live that long.

  1. I think the ‘Her Age’ means your age – not your mother’s. You also have to enter how many years you want to be married. So we have a 87% chance of making it to #24 in June, a 67% to making it to 30 years, and only a 47% making it to 50 years.

  2. Okay – now I am not reading your comments very well. It was ALL of your mother’s data. Anyhow, it was worth a try.

  3. I actually couldn’t get any numbers to run. Not mine, not my folks’. I’d put them in, click, and get nothing. It may be Safari, since some things aren’t supported.
