Before heading to the altar or the Justice of the Peace, surf over to the Marriage Calculator to decide if you and your beloved are in danger of ending up divorced. Already married? Check your chances of staying that way for the next five years. The Marriage Calculator uses information from the U.S. Census Bureau to figure the odds of living happily ever after with your spouse.
Matrimonial track records suggest that factors such as level of education and age at time of marriage are strong indicators of longevity. Income isn't one of the specific factors on the Marriage Calculator but level of education is often related to income level.
"The past is being used to determine the future with this calculator," says G. Cotter Cunningham, CEO of divorce360.com. "Here's a tool for everyone who is thinking of getting married right now."
What do you think? Would you let the Marriage Calculator influence your choice of spouse?
