Divorce Predictor #12: You have been diagnosed with cancer.

Women who have been diagnosed with cervical cancer have a 40 percent likelihood of getting divorced, whereas men who have been diagnosed with testicular cancer have a 20 percent likelihood.

Conversely, breast cancer survivors, who are typically older, are 8 percent less likely to divorce.
