That is the same as "I'M ASKING FOR A FRIEND...."

No, it isn't.

Personally, I never married because I saw a lot of people with a LOT more social smarts than I have getting divorced. If the nominal rate of divorce was 50%, I always thought the odds of my getting divorced was A LOT higher.

If the odds of divorce FOR YOU are 80-90%, why bother?

I also reached the conclusion that GETTING MARRIED was easy to do. It's something I could have done several times.

STAYING married is often quite difficult. I never had much confidence that would work for me. So again --- why bother?

But it's still an interesting subject to discuss.
