Is there a such thing as "The Formula for Love"?

Statistics often site that 50% of all marriages end in divorce. So, many couples experience difficulty, obviously. But what about the other 50%...of couples who are making it work! The Switzerland Geneva School of Business wondered the same thing perhaps and has suggested that there is an actual formula for "love" and that it can increase a couples chances for happiness up to 20%

Curious? I was too! So here is the formula and you be the judge!
1. The husband should be 5 years older than his bride.
2. Couple should be of the same heritage.
3. The wife should be at least 27% smarter than the husband.
4. The Wife should hold a degree and the husband should not.
5. Neither should be divorced.

What is your formula for "love"? What elements do you find essential for a long and happy marriage?

Communication, compromise and always kiss before bed have kept my marriage together for over 20+ years!

Anonymous 1 - so funny! Formula, as in "baby formula" and baby as in, your husband could be your own special brew! Love that idea, so if you conjure up a recipe for one, do share! And yes, the source of the post is from a business school. So their formula was developed from that perspective.

Anonymous 2 - Congrats on 20+ years of marriage! Amazing! Thanks for sharing your formula for love. In fact, when I got married, kissing before bed was advice that I received the most!

Thank you ladies for sharing!

I would like to find out how to calculate the intelligence formula. That may come in handy one day when debating with the husband. Or maybe I should come up with my own formula that factors in IQ, formal education, and common sense!
