Click and Clack, the Car Talk Guys, got something started last weekend with a call from Dan:
Dan took a look at his family, with 5 brothers and sisters, and parents who've been married for more than 50 years and he drew this conclusion: People who keep their cars longer are less likely to get divorced.
This guy is on to something. It might relate to whether a partner is lower maintenance and what the customer satisfaction is overall on the original deal. How many times have you wanted to "trade your wife in for a new model"? Or have you ever considered a marriage "tune-up"?
Maybe, as the Sheryl Crow song goes:
It's not having what you want. It's wanting what you've got.
Read more about the theory over at the Car Talk site. It's worth a read for the comments.
