Kristen and I went to the doctor with Bella today and as we were going through some parenting magazines we came across this:
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, "The Northeast has the most ball clubs and the lowest divorce rate in the U.S."
Searching online I found this from Divorce360.com:
If you’re married and you live in a city that has a professional baseball you’re less likely to get a divorce than if you live in a city without a pro ball team. “You’re 28 percent more likely to get a divorce if you live in a town that wants a professional baseball team,” said Howard Markman, director of the Center for Marital and Family Studies. “Baseball is something couples can do together for fun. Baseball is a family-oriented activity, unlike the theatre. If you talk while you’re at the theatre they’ll kick you out. But you can go to a baseball game and talk to your hearts content and nobody cares, explain Markman. Couples who attend baseball games are more likely to stay together over the long haul than those who don’t.
I wonder if this goes to other sports as well. My friend Gdup wants to know the statistics of having 2 pro teams in your city if that helps. I say not if you a NY Mets and Yankees fan!
