Multiple partners precipitates divorce November 18, 2010

I’ve seen this kind of information before, strong indications that, especially for women, the number of sexual partners a person has being a very strong indicator of future divorce.   You can see the methodology to arrive at these results at the link, but the results have a certain intuitive correctness that seems to correspond pretty well with observed reality.  One interesting note: if a woman has more than 20 partners in her life, her likelihood of divorcing if she ever marries is near 100%.  This is not to pick on the ladies, but the data seems to show that, for whatever reason, men with numerous partners are significantly less likely to get divorced.  The data does show that the more partners one has, the more likely divorce is.

It’s also rather gratifying to note that those who have only ever had one partner have divorce rates near zero.
