Young Seinfeld.

And... let's see.

No one has yet satisfactorily explained why couples who marry in January, February and March tend to have the highest divorce rates.

Any theories?

There appears to be a rather high concentration of births in September/October - bundling babies? Christmas presents? New Years Celebrations? Valentine's gifts?

Maybe Jan/Feb/Mar is generally when people figure out that that HAVE to get married, thus increasing the rate of rushed weddings during that month.

Just a thought.

Because the winter season is as cold as their love for eachother.

BS, at your service

"Come snuggle, darling."
"You're warm. Oh, what's that?"

It's the ancient mating ritual in which the male seduces the female by offering warmth in the cold weather (men naturally have a higher temperature because they're the hunters and must stand still to stalk prey; also the weaker sperm are inactive at higher temperatures so it's a darwinian pre-birth survival of the fittest).

But, in this day and age, we tend to overcome our instincts once we realize our mistakes (well, some of us do).

She really does.

I wasn't too impressed in truth though, but slightly amused.

I'm pretty sure that those are not the planned weddings. Even though planned weddings seem to fail often too.

I think weddings can fail for a thousand reasons. :(

January-March are pretty lonely months, with Christmas just past, Valentine's Day, etc, anyone who is single, or looking for a prospective partner might make a faux pas when it comes to actually choosing a spouse. Plus the weather actually makes people feel lonely too.

I agree with this theory a lot. That was my first thoughts on the situation as well.

Yeah the February one is a given for unsuccessful marriages. Most of those people get married on or around valentines day, caught up in all that valentine romanticness and do spontaneous marriages.

Maybe January everyones getting drunk and eloping on New Years xD

I would never plan a wedding in those months as they are cold and unromantic, so it is possible that people who are not romantic get married then. As they do not create their relationships they tend to divorce.

*nod* Winter weddings can be beautiful though, and i know people that married in those months that are deeply in love.. just not as many as some of the others.

Yes, I am sure they can be lovely, I have never been to one actually! My parents got married in March and they divorced!

Well Xmas is a high point for suicide because it marks the end of one year and many people think, well I don't want another year like that. Also over Xmas people are given to the family way of thinking as they can be lonely or get jaded because xmas is really for kids mostly, so they want to experience xmas with a family of their own.

Hmm so perhaps people are more likley to push a relationship to marriage when it hasn't got the mileage at that time?

I'm tired.
