Interesting Statistics from DearPeggy.com

MARRIAGE TO AN AFFAIR PARTNER

Diane, regarding your comment:
I suppose the next thing will be to discredit the idea that that
marrying the person with whom you had an affair reduces chances of
remarriage success.

The generally-accepted statistics:
--marriage results from an affair somewhere between 1% and 9% of the time (based on the particular study) --the divorce rate for such marriages is about 70%

I usually tell people that the chances of having a successful marriage that began from an affair is "about like winning the lottery" - possible for a rare few, but not something any sensible person would bet on.
