Divorce Predictor #15: You are in a same-sex marriage.

As we have discussed here (The Legal Hurdles of Obtaining a Same-Sex Divorce) legal issues related to same sex divorce are, naturally, becoming more important as same sex marriage increases. According to a new research team from Stockholm University’s Department of Sociology and Demography, who studied legal partnerships in Norway and Sweden, same-sex marriages are much more likely to end in divorce than opposite-sex marriages. This study found that male same-sex marriages are 50 percent more likely to end in divorce than heterosexual marriages, while female same-sex marriages are 167 percent more likely.
