  • women who were virgins on their wedding night were the least likely to get divorced, according to the study
  • ‘The highest five-year divorce rates of all are associated with marrying in the 2000s and having 10 or more premarital sex partners: 33 percent
  • people who attend church frequently have lower divorce rates than do non-participants

A study has found how the number of sexual partners you’ve had could determine whether your marriage will last.

Nicholas H. Wolfinger, professor of Family and Consumer Studies at the University of Utah, studied statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Survey of Family Growth going back as far as the 1970s

The study found that for women marrying since 2000, those with 10 or more partners were the most likely to divorce – but Professor Wolfinger says this only became true in recent years.
