And if you don't mind my asking, how long have you been married?
Most Helpful Guy
This is something I posted yesterday:
In about 90% of cases, it will be the wife who turns off all affection. Often she won't have a reason or give one. It won't matter if hubby is a better man than ever. That makes no difference. 52% of first marriages end in divorce or separation.
Only about 20% of wives will still be showing regular affection at 20 years into a marriage. Women are normally their own worst enemy, and most will turn a marriage to shit. It will cost everyone emotionally and financially, but there's no stopping them. This will explain what's going through her head, so take careful note. www.macleans.ca/culture/books/the-two-year-itch/
How can you avoid it?
* Marrying a bride under 25 could make the odds worse by about 20%. Over 25, there doesn't seem to be much change with age. 25+ is good. The husband's age has little effect, because men are rarely responsible for ruining marriage.
* If a white man marries a black woman, the chance of divorce or separation reduces by 44%. That's quite significant. Those men are unlikely to better than the men who marry white women, so the cause is most likely in the women.
* I personally wouldn't marry a woman if she or any of her immediate female blood relatives had ever divorced (aunts, cousins, etc). That would be a red flag. Some things run in the family.
*The only other clue you could find would be her 2D:4D ratio. That's the ratio of the length of her index finger compared to ring finger. Women with high 2D:4D ratio have longer lasting relationships, are less promiscuous, and typically look more feminine. They have a lower waist /hip ratio, more like 70% than 80%. www.hookingupsmart.com/.../
The ratio varies some from race to race, but I'd only accept a woman who was within the top 25% for her race.
This could help a little, but only if the marriage involves one of the elusive 20% of women. cdn. preterhuman. net/.../...20Love%20with%20You. PDF
Don't ask the couples who have a happy marriage, and got there by dumb luck.0
