Gather some real statistical data and run a multiple regression with an alpha level of .05 to determine what negative characteristics are contributing to your poor friend choices. Then use that to improve. Problem solved. :)

#34 - Saying "love is dying" with regards to marriage presupposes most marriages have historically been based on love. This is a fairly modern phenomena. Divorce rates are up for many reasons that have nothing to do with "love": -Less stigma -Less churches telling you you'll go to h*ll if you get divorced -Women being able to provide for themselves without a man (so less fear of splitting up) -People actually getting married for love (and then falling out of love eventually) -People living longer (and therefore having to deal with their spouse longer) That's just off the top of my head.

Lol, good idea. And OP saying that 90% of statistics are made up is exactly like the familiar quote from Abe Lincoln about the problem with things you hear on the Internet.... xD Oh, the irony

It's actually not that high-- it depends on how you look at the statistics. First time marriages are less likely to get a divorce, somewhere in the 40 percentile. The overall number of divorces is driven up by second marriages and above. Essentially, people who have divorced once are more likely to divorce a second time, making the statistic higher. So if you're a first time marriage, only about 40-something% end in divorce. If you're divorced and remarry, 50-something% end in divorce. Statistics can be misleading if you don't pay attention to how they're added up.

He was referring to the divorce statistic, which is around 50% of total marriage ending in divorce. That one is accurate, and the op was wrong when he made fun of his friend for making up statistics.
