I am a regular Google Plus guy and spend time on this particular social media platform to communicate and connect with other people and share ideas and information.
Today I was searching to see if anybody had written any interesting articles about divorce in the last 24 hours or so. So I was doing a hashtag search for #divorce and came upon a very interesting article written by a Pittsburgh Divorce Attorney named Lisa Marie Vari.
The article was interesting for two reasons. First, because it mentioned “Divorce Insurance”. I had never heard of that so wanted to learn more. You can read the entire article about divorce insurance here. But I was more interested in the discussion about a Divorce Probability Calculator.
So I went to check out this divorce probability calculator to see what it was all about. This divorce calculator is not just for California. This was just my little local search tactic.
So here is what I learned about the divorce probability calculator. Their website says the formula was based on information gathered in face-to-face interviews with 10,847 women ages 15-44 in 1995 and 12,571 men and women aged 15-44 in 2002 and was conducted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for Disease Control and Prevention.
The calculator says they are correct with only a 13% margin of error.
I thought it would be interesting to take the test and see what kind of questions they were asking. There were approximately 20 questions. The initial questions had to do with if you a man or woman, age, race, if you have been married before, education level, employment status and income level, etc. Essentially establishing a base. Then the questions asked if you drink alcohol, have arguments with your wife, had children before marriage or shortly after getting married, if your parents were divorced, history of mental illness and so on.
So I went all the way through the divorce probability calculator and it gives you a score. But the only way to know what your score means is to enter your email address.
As you go through the divorce probability calculator, you can see, based on the questions asked, who the more likely candidates for divorce are. If anything, it was interesting. Not sure what the plan is of the company for asking for your email address though. Could be a lead generation source for them i suppose. Why else would folks be on the site?
