Couples Who Marry On Valentine's Day Are More Likely To Divorce

A study out of the University of Melbourne in Australia suggests couples who marry on Valentine's Day are significantly more likely to divorce than couples who don't tie the knot on a 'gimmick' date.

The study found couples who marry on Feb. 14 are 38 percent more likely to split up within five years than other couples. Additionally, 24 percent are more likely to divorce within a decade.

"People who married on [Valentine's Day] were less alike, in terms of education and ages, and [they're also] more likely to have been married before and . . . have children already," according to the study.
