Those 50% divorce stats are scary, then I realize that Liz Taylor, Larry King and Ken are skewing the stats. Things are lookin' good for me and the little lady!

I don't have the link but apparently more like 2/3s of 1st marriages don't end in divorce. It seems that second marriages also have a fairly high success rate. Once a person gets married for the third time the chances are that they will divorce again and again. This skews the stats and allows alarmists to claim that 1/2 of all marriages end in divorce. While true in a statistical sense it not true in a real sense.

Lies, damm lies and statistics.

Go get that Harley and that should take care of the 'went sour' part.
