EDITOR'S NOTE: If you Arc •'I married, the chances are overwhelming that you will be. The foitofrMg dispatch, the first of tomf, examines the subject of matrimony and divorce. By BARNEY SEtBERT United Press International June is busting out all over with marriages, and the annual national rate shows that six persons wed every minute. The ceremony is performed on an average of every 19V4 seconds through the year. The total number of persons, wed this year will be about 1.6 million. And despite the concern over the rising divorce rate, the bulk of them will stay married. Census figures show that 85 per cent of the Americans who have been married have had only one spouse. Sociologists have found that three-fourths of all divorced persons remarry within five years. Subject Of Debate Thus, most American marriages endure, happily or otherwise. The happiness percentage has been a subject of debate down through the centuries. Author J. P. Marquand said marriage is "damnably serious business, particularly around Boston." Essayist Michel Dc Montaigne likened marriage to a "cage," Shakespeare to a "curse," and Cervantes to a "noose." Popular it is. In the United States 9 of every 10 persons marry before the age of 32. The av­ erage age for marriage is around 20 for women and 22 for men — somewhat too soon according to many authorities. The most popular age for marriage among women is 23 and among men 2627. If you are an unmarried woman between the ages, of 22 and 24 there is one chance in five you will marry before the year ends. If you are an unmarried male between the ages of 25 and 28 there is better than one chance in six you will marry within the next 12 months. But if you are a bachelor aged 30 there are less than three chances in four you will ever marry. A 30-year-old spinster has only slightly more than one chance in two of ever marrying. An unmarried woman who is 40 has only one chance in five of finding a husband, but an unmarried man the same age has a one in three chance. "Two Party System" An American Medical Association writer, Dr. Stanley R. Dean, described marriage as "probably the first two-party system of government ever devised." An ideal partner in this two- parfv system. Or James H. Peterson, University of Southern California sociologist and marriage counselor said, is "a person who meets one's emotional needs, wits within the boundary of one's temperamental pattern, who m physically attractive, and who maintains interests that are stimulating — one who has a well developed sense of values on which one can depend, and one who has fairly similar ctiUuf«f*ref#f* ence groups (a sodotogfeal tertn meaning similar background)." As for what makes marriage* go wrong, Peterson warned: "As the age of the individual goes down from 21, the dlvbree rate goes up. The lower the age, the higher the rate of failure*. "The higher the educational level, the lower the rate of divorce," he adds. "The morn schooling the fewer the problems." (Tomorrow: Why Marriages Fall) CHRISTIAN CIRCLE The morning circle of the First Christian Church will meet for • breakfast meeting in the Lions Shelter at Lake Storey on Wednesday morning at 9:30 o'clock.
