The Daily Beast published an article this week entitled, “15 Ways to Predict Divorce.” Apparently, a great indicator of the likelihood of divorce is same-sex marriage. A study by the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy, (iMAPP) found that male same-sex marriages are 50% and female same-sex marriages are 167% more likely to end in divorce than heterosexual marriages.

By contrast, Catholics have a 28% likelihood to get divorced, while the average married American has a 50% chance of filing for divorce.
