This Is How Many Years Your Relationship Will Last

Considerin he’s currently giving me the silent treatment, we got a damn good number.

88.8 percent. That’s the probability that my relationship with Boo will last 10 more years. It’s a damn good number considering that no relationship is perfect, and that he’s currently giving me the silent treatment due to differing opinions on…everything.

From day care to money to where to buy a home (I’m rooting for Charlotte, he’s okay with staying in Long Island – blah!) to when and how we’ll buy said home, Boo and I can’t seem to agree on anything lately. So I’ll take 88 percent.

What’s the rate of your relationship success? This website claims to predict that after you answer these 6 simple questions.

1. What is your relationship status?

2. How long have you been in your relationship?

3. How many kids do you have between 2 and 5 years old?

4. What is your highest level of education? Your partners?

5. How old are you? How old is your partner? 

6. How many family members do you see on average every month?

The percentage of my relationship’s success would have increased if Boo and I were married, not just engaged; marriage, according to their research, shows that a couple is that much more commitment to one another. It’s easier to walk away from a relationship when you’re not legally and financially bound to your partner. You think twice about separating when you have to split assets 50/50. 

Another factor is family. Aside from Boo’s parents, who live 35-45 minutes away depending on traffic (and there’s always traffic) we don’t live near any familia. We rarely interact and socialize with as tias, primas and hermanas/os  – mine or his. If we did, we may have broken the 90 percent mark, as the more family members a couple interacts with the higher the likelihood their union stays intact. Cause family members make sure your ass (or your partners) comes correct. In non-80’s hip-hop terms, theyre the eyes and ears of the relationship. So watch yo back!

PLUS: My Family Keep Asking, ‘When Are You Having a Baby?”

Speaking of back, Boo’s talking to me again. I must shower him with QT so we can reconnect, so we can one day get married and have more bebes. With all of that we may still not have a 100 percent success rate; then again, who wants to be perfect?
