60.0% ""The world of love and sex isn’t merely a matter of oceanic desires and emotions. Our choices and their consequences actually make a whole lot of sense when we look at things from an economic standpoint. In fact, the logic of economics explains the otherwise mystifying world of dating, marriage and divorce.""

60.0% ""It’s not that people with an advanced degree are better able to find a perfect match; it’s that people with a better education usually make more money.Financial instability tends to lead to stress, which is a well-known marriage-killer.Picture a small neighborhood where each family’s house looks the same.""

60.0% ""Most of us probably think that love is the glue that keeps most marriages together. But money and education play big roles as well.According to a recent study conducted by economics professors Philip Oreopoulos and Kjell Salvanes, those with a postgraduate degree only have a 3-percent chance of getting divorced, while those with a high school diploma have a 16-percent chance.""

50.0% ""From an economic standpoint, it makes good sense that a woman would prefer becoming the second or third wife of a wealthy man than the first and only wife of a poor man. While being an additional wife might come at a “cost,” that cost is nonetheless outweighed by the benefits.""
