12 Predictors of a Successful Marriage

Relationship website YourTang has compiled a list of 12 predictors of a successful marriage, based on several studies. Here are a dozen signs that you’re in it for the long haul:

  • Do not get married before the age of 25.
  • Do not have children in the first year of your marriage.
  • Have an income-producing job with stability before you get married.
  • Couples that consider themselves religious/ spiritual are less likely to get divorced.
  • College educated couples have a lower chance of divorcing than those with only a high school diploma.
  • Make sure the one you love is your best friend.
  • Always fight fair in your relationship.
  • Keep your individual identity.
  • Always allow time to be alone — for both of you.
  • Talk about anything and everything.
  • Always show mutual respect and admiration for each other.
  • Make sure your actions speak louder than words — marriage takes hard work.
