Your education could determine how long your marriage lasts.
According to the Pew Research institute, the more education you have the longer your marriage will last.
The non-partisan D.C. think tanks said the probability of a marriage lasting 20 years for women with a bachelor’s degree is roughly 79 percent.
But with women who have a high school degree or less that number drops to 40 percent.
When it comes to men, 65 percent of those with a bachelor’s degree are likely to stay married for 20 years.
That number drops to 50 percent with men who have a high school diploma or less.
The research from the institute doesn’t actually say why more education leads to a longer lasting marriage.
But other research does show that people with college educations tend to marry later in life and they’re more likely to be financially stable.
