I was reading this article earlier today saying that the smaller the age gap, the less chances of a divorce. Do you agree with it?
In my surrounding I've seen many types of scenarios that worked or failed. My Dad is 11 years older than Mom and they've been married for 20+ Years. My aunt is a year older than her husband and they've been also married for 20+.
Do you think there is a certain tendency?
Here's the article:

On the surface yes it probably has some merit here. To figure this out youd need to have large amounts of data and use variables that will explain a divorce or not having one. Each culture and country might have different variables that either increase the chance of divorces or doesn't.
I can't say its true but on average i think it make a lot of sense.
Think of this way, Lets say if you dont agree with the article at all, meaning you dont agree large age gaps can increase divorce rates. Does that mean small age gaps and large age gaps have a similar impact on the couple? Hummm
P. s in your case, the article also says that the longer you are married, the chances of divorce go down drastically, even if there is a large age gap, such as you mom and dad0

as you mentioned in your description it s not true. I don t agree.
why? cause there are a lot of factors to consider here.
It differs in each country according to tradition, culture, norms...
each person is different, lifestyle is different, maturity isn t related to age always.
People have different needs...
Maybe a girl likes a paternal figure as a father etc...
it s just to vague of a topic to put in numbers.1
