A British mathematician has devised a formula to predict whether loved-up couples are bound to spend their lives together or end their marriages in divorce.
Oxford University professor James Murray said his formula successfully predicted whether a couple would divorce 94 per cent of the time, in a study of 700 newly married couples.
"Some couples might as well get divorced right away," said Professor Murray, who was to present his findings to the Royal Society in London, after receiving one of its oldest awards.

Are we really meant to stay with one other person forever? Like the monogamous ideal insists we are? Or is chemistry just supposed to bring us together long enough to make genetically good babies and then move on to the next partner so all our genetic eggs are not in one basket? (Create greater diversity in our own offspring thus maximizing the odds that ONE of them will be successful?)
The formula I used to get my divorces was to stay drunk, take drugs and run around with other women. It worked everytime and fast!
