Marriage Calculator Predicts Divorce Rates Of NYC Celebrity Couples

by Chiara Atik · May 20, 2010

This will cheer you up this morning: we used a marriage calculator, and discovered that the best way to avoid getting a divorce is to have gotten married before 1960. If you missed the boat on that one, you're not alone! At least we can make ourselves feel better by calculating the divorce odds of some of our favorite celebrity couples!--

(In most of these cases, we filled out the form as the woman)

Ivanka And Jared

Sex: Female (Ivanka)

Children: No

Married: After 1980

Education: College Grad

Age at time of marriage: 27-30

Years Married: (almost) 1

According To The Marriage Calculator: 8% of people with similar backgrounds will be divorced in the next five years, which puts Ivanka and Jared in the High Risk category.

According to the experts at Guest of a Guest: Ivanka and Jared both have good heads on their shoulders (they shop at K-Mart!) but Ivanka does come from a bit of a divorce legacy...

Euan Rellie And Lucy Sykes

Sex: Female

Married: After 1980

Children: Yes

Education: College (we think??)

Age at time of marriage: 33

Years married: 8

According To The Marriage Calculator: 5% of people with similar backgrounds will be divorced over the next five years, which puts Lucy and Euan at average risk.

According to the experts at Guest of a Guest:If Euan had a midlife crises and started dating a much younger woman, we wouldn't be shocked. But if they've weathered staying married in the NY Social scene thus far, they're odds are probably pretty good.

Regis and Joy Philbin

Sex: Female

Children: Yes

Married: 1970

Education: Some College

Age at time of marriage: 29

Years Married: 40

According To The Marriage Calculator: Less than 3% of people with similar backgrounds will be divorced over the next five years, which puts Regis an Joy at a low risk.

According to the experts at Guest of a Guest: Til Death Do Them Part, we say...

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy

Sex: Female

Children: Yes

Married: After 1980

Education: College

Age At Time Of Marriage: 40

Years married: Less than 1

According to the Marriage Calculator: 5% of people with similar backgrounds will be divorced over the next five years, which puts Bethenny and Jason at lower risk.

According to the experts at Guest of a Guest: Bethenny's certainly in no mood to hop back into the dating pool, they just had a baby, and they're the same level of attractiveness. They're divorce odds would probably be higher if Bethenny had started RHNY AFTER getting married, but Jason, incredibly, started dating her once she was already famous--he knew exactly what he was signing up for.
