Re: spinoff: Married Woman

The divorce rate is over 50% for first marriages, and higher for second and third, as a matter of fact the more times your married the higher chance of divorce.

My first husband cheated on me throughout our relationship. I was 19, he was 30. Long story short I realized what a @#$@# he was and that I needed to leave, divorced by 22. Second marriage was sent from heaven. Together at 23, married at 25 and had a WONDERFUL time until his illness. He passed away in my arms early in 03.

Re: spinoff: Married Woman

Thank you very much for all the gentle thoughts.

I am doing well. I am seeing somebody very special who understands when I need to talk about it, or just cry. I know my dear husband is my special angel now. I honestly think he had a hand in getting my boyfriend and I together. His only wish was ever just that I be happy

Don"t listen to the radio.Those reports are used to generate ratings.

Re: spinoff: Married Woman

I fell in that age range and marital status. But I didn't make anywhere near that much money and I have never ever had an extramarital affair.

Re: spinoff: Married Woman

I have known people in the media{radio,newspaper},they say they have to repotr a certain amount of "fluff" to keep ratings up.Radio will take a survey and dress it up to have people call in who fit that stereotype and rant about it.To say a certain age or
class of people cheat more than another is attention grabbing.I can go to the local
convienence store and find a woman who fits that profile without the money flow.
Many women who are financially secure and don"t need a husband to support them
will get a divorce quicker than one who needs the finances.A company can play with a stat and work it to their listener"s demographics.
Watch the arbitron ratings for the stations in your area.They break down their listener"s by age,gender,income race and when a certain profile listens to the station.
These survey have to have a certain amout of truth,but the leeway is large how they can interperate the statistics.A nationwide survey can be done by a company that owns multiple stations around the country.
If you fit that profile and knew it was based on ratings.How woulds you feel about those stats?

I'd figure that I was in the percentage of married women of that age who DON'T have affairs - and don't make that much money.
I don't actually spend alot of time doubting the percentages so much - they may even be higher since people who do have affairs may find it easier to lie than tell the truth.
And I guess if it was based on ratings I'd have to just hope that it might punch somebody's button and make them think about what they're doing.
I think having an affair is making the conscious choice of stepping over that line.
If it comes right down to it it doesn't matter how much someone makes - they can still end one relationship before starting another.
