The secret of a happy marriage

To most people having a happy marriages takes a lot of devotion, patience and true love. But to some statisticians there is more to it than that.
According to a study the couples with the best chance are those where a woman with a superior education marries a man who is five or more years older than herself. Neither should be a divorcee.

By comparison, a marriage where a woman partners an equally poorly educated male divorcee who is five or more years her junior is up to five times more likely to fail.
To me looking at those statistics it only shows one thing, Birds of a feather flock together. Either it's education or the lack of eduction. You chose something that's familiar to you and your background. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't... Somehow I stil do believe that love and respect for each other are the most important things for a happy marriage.
