Want To Be Happily Married? Go To College! (New Study Reveals)

April 14, 2012  |  

Can a college degree really increase your chances of getting married? Well, a new study has revealed that women with college educations have more marriage staying power.

According to a new study from sociologists at NYU (conducted on women of all races, thankfully) doctors have found that those with fancy college degrees apparently have less divorce rates. One reason is that educated couples now  feel comfortable financially before walking down the aisle, hence they usually don’t encounter money woes that can lead to divorce. Read full story here…

  • There is no college course that will teach you how to be a good mate…..  Back in the day where it wasn’t a real requirement to go to college, because getting a good job out of highschool was easy, and college was really for rich folks. Couples used to stay together longer. (i.e. our parents,grandparents etc) Now that practically everyone is required to go to college the divorce rate is at 50%…so I’m not buying this at all.

      That is true. Almost everyone has a college degree now and no one is happier.

    financial stability doesn’t mean you won’t divorce. But financial instability is a big indicator that you will.

    I once read a “study” where they said college educated couples are more likely to cheat, too. Not against marriage or education but just sayin’. Depends on the couple.

    Can we put more study time into curing AIDS? 

    • Guest

      No that is just silly to even suggest that.

      They probably do have the cure but they make more money with giving out the medicines to help fight it off than curing it. Think about it would you rather have people paying once every blue moon for a pill or would you rather have them coming once a month paying for a x amount of drugs?
