Small Age Gap between Spouses Lowers Likelihood of Divorce

by

A study, published by The Atlantic, suggests that the larger the age gap between a person and their spouse, the higher the chances that the marriage will end in divorce.  As the figure suggests, if spouses have one year age gap they are 3% more likely to get divorced than individuals who are of the same age. If the age difference crosses twenty years, the couples are over 172% more likely to get divorced.
