Is there a relationship between relationship-length (in months) and chance of breakup?

Maybe I'll start a poll elsewhere if there isn't already a study.

So maybe we get a list of 150 failed relationships and the time they lasted. Then we can see, for example, "60% of failed relationships lasted one month," or, "40% of failed relationships lasted 3 months," or "10% of failed relationships lasted one year. That would suggest that as the length of the time of a relationship increases, the chance of a breakup decreases.

If we get data all over the place, then we know that there is no such relationship.

DO ME A FAVOR: list the time-lengths of all your failed relationships.

So if you have had 3 final breakups/failed relationships, you would for example list:

4 months
9 months
31 months

I'll see what I can do with this data.

Divorces count too. Widows, however don't. That's not a failed relationship. That's just... tough luck. Sorry mate.

  • What about relationships that last long because one of the people is afraid to leave because of an abusive relationship? Or relationships that don't last long because they moved or were forced to break up or something? There's too many variables I think.

    • But I think those are outliers so it shouldn't affect the function/graph too much...

    • How would you calculate the reason for breakup into it though?

    • You wouldn't.

  • I believe you mean "is there a correlation". A negative correlation means that more of A tends to be met with less of B. No correlation would mean that it's unrelated.

    Sorry, just had to share that, I've never been in a relationship.

    I'm curious though, what else could you do? Like maybe ask how each relationship ended and on a scale of 1 to 10 how well each relationship went overall.
