How to beat the odds of divorce

Posted 1 day ago by Missing-user-75 Lily Koi to Holy Kaw!

Like this post


There are all sorts of stats about which couples make it and which couples end up divorcing. Mental Floss takes a look at seven studies and offers some advice on how you can be among the elite group that lasts. For example:

Quit Smoking

A study published in 2010 (PDF here) found that if only one partner smoked, it caused more marital problems than differing religions, different backgrounds, even different plans for having children.

Couples are an astonishing 76-95% more likely to get divorced if only one of them smokes. The amount increases when the wife is the partner with the habit. While couples who both smoke have it a bit better, a 1998 study found they are still 53% more likely than non-smoking couples to end their marriage.

Take Up Optometry

Analysis of census data from 2000 found some professions seem to be almost divorce-proof. As one might expect, religious workers and clergy had some of the lowest divorce rates, but there were some slightly less obvious professions in the bottom ten. These included optometrists, shuttle car drivers and transit police, with optometrists clocking in with a ridiculously low 4% chance of getting divorced. Other low risk professions included farming and nuclear engineers.

If you think your job as a massage therapist, animal trainer, or mathematician puts you in the clear, think again. You’re in the top ten most-likely-to-get-divorced jobs.

How to find out what your customers really think

A business succeeds or fails based on how well it pleases its customers. If you're not selling to your base, you're doomed. Open Forum helps you build an effective survey in four easy steps. Here's one of the steps:

Keep it short. How many times have you started to take an online survey only to get bogged down in a seemingly endless series of screens? The Cint survey found shorter is better. Forty percent of consumers will spend one to five minutes taking a survey; 30 percent will devote up to 10 minutes; and just 13 percent are happy to spend over 20 minutes. (I’m surprised that number is so high.) Remember, people are busy, so keep it short and simple.

Scientists report advances toward a clock accurate to within a tenth of a second over 14 billion years—the age of the universe.

“In our paper, we show that by using lasers to orient the electrons in a very specific way, we can use the neutron of an atomic nucleus as the clock pendulum,” says Corey Campbell, a physicist at Georgia Tech.

Photographers uploading their pictures to Facebook often felt the pang of disappointment at seeing the low-res, small version of their work appear on the social network. Now, thanks to an update by the Facebook engineering team, photo snappers need not fret about friends seeing their snapshots at less than stellar quality.

Facebook rolled out a full-screen viewing option this week to its photo-browsing features. The full-screen view also automatically shows the high-resolution version of photographs.

The full-screen feature is currently in limited release and only works on the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome.

The Bloggess wrote a book

The spit-milk-out-your-nose (and ears) hilarity of Jenny Lawson will soon be available in hardcover form. Better known to interwebbers as The Bloggess, Lawson's first book, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir, hits shelves April 17, 2012.

For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris—Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut.

Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives—the ones we’d like to pretend never happened—are in fact the ones that define us. In Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor. Chapters include: “Stanley the Magical, Talking Squirrel”; “A Series of Angry Post-It Notes to My Husband”; “My Vagina Is Fine. Thanks for Asking”; “And Then I Snuck a Dead Cuban Alligator on an Airplane.” Pictures with captions (no one would believe these things without proof) accompany the text.

Welcoming a precious little one into the world, Hilary Duff gave birth to her first child on Tuesday evening (March 20).

Announcing the news on Thursday (March 22), the "Cheaper By the Dozen" actress joyously told that she and former NHL star husband Mike Comrie have named their son Luca Cruz.

Offering up the baby birth news via Twitter, Miss Duff wrote, "Welcome to the world, Luca Cruz Comrie! Tuesday evening, we became proud parents of a healthy 7 pound, 6 ounce beautiful boy."

The 24-year-old added, "We are overjoyed and feel like the luckiest parents in the world."

As for what's in store now that she's a first-time mother, Hilary previously told press, "I think that after I have the baby I'll want to sit still for a few months and learn how to be a really good mom. And then there's no reason why I can't put a record out and tour... It might take a little while but I'm really excited about it."
