Everything in our lives is based on facts and truths we usually forget to pay enough attention to. And we often reach them by chance either through our life’s experiences or through studies and research done by experts. 

Marriage is a bond that brings together two different people from two different worlds. When the couple starts connecting on a more intimate level they consider marriage to share their lives together. After much research and studies conducted on marriage, sociologists and psychologists have reached interesting and significant results and conclusions. 

10 strangest facts about marriage:

1) Married couples share only 4 minutes alone per day as a result of being occupied with their daily jobs, their children, watching television, using the internet, practicing their hobbies, household chores, and other family obligations.

2) 75 % of married couples who have been in love for several years before marriage end up in divorce.

3) Getting married at a young age, less than 25 years of age, increases the chance of a divorce.

4) There is a loss of nearly 6 billion dollars in US companies resulting from workers’ low production rate resulting from their personal marital conflicts. On the other hand, workers who enjoy a happy married life show a higher production rate. 

5) Psychologists at Wake Forest University have confirmed that marriage boosts self-confidence and self-satisfaction with life. This happens for reasons such as sharing an intimate and understanding relationship, having financial stability and children.

6) Friendship, laughter, tolerance, compatibility, sexual relationship, and trust between spouses, are all important elements to ensure a happy and successful marriage.

7) Marriage does not automatically make us happy in life. In fact, according to a study that lasted for 15 years confirmed that most people were happier before marriage. 

8) More than 40% of couples in the United States have at least married once before their current marriage. In the meantime, the second marriage happens within 5 years.

9) Strangely enough, the most successful marriages happen when the woman is the eldest of her siblings and the man is the youngest. Usually, there would be tension and aggression between the couple if the two of them are the eldest. The couple that has the most probability of divorce happens when both are the youngest.

10) The Divorce rate is higher when the woman is much older than the man. However, it is not necessarily the same the other way around.
