We need to find a Brad that has wings and does poetry. Then we'll have met Brad the Bard Bird.

Huh ... demographic shifts make it kinda tricky to make sense of the trends in marriage/divorce. The divorce rate has dropped, but so has the marriage rate, so it may be that there is a trend toward a larger population of unmarried people rather than a change in how long/stable married couples' relationships are.

Yes, there's data. I can't find any in a convenient form, though.

It seems like the data points to a better than 50% chance that a marriage started today will last for life (even more so if they're college educated and somewhere in the 25-35 year old range)

What if those who get married have a tendency to die really young? We need more data.

But I doubt that's the case. Life expectancy is higher for married people.

Is that because someone is There to pull married people out of the Gully?
