Fun Facts #1: Marriage

This is personally one of my favourite topics for the essays: Marriage and Family. While taking a look at these figures, we must also know what are the implications of these facts…

Here are some interesting facts that I have found:

#1: 75% of people who marry partners from an affair eventually divorce.

#2: 80% of all marriage in history were between second cousins or closer. Have the notions and morality of marriage shift over time? Who decides on these notions?

#3: In France, you can marry a dead person.

#4: First marriages that end in divorce usually last an average of 8 years.

#5: Marital infidelity was punishable with jail in South Korea until 2015. Does this necessarily hint towards a shift in moral attitudes in South Korea and the dilution of family ties?
