    staying wed



    Husbands who are close to their in-laws - and, yes, that does include your mother-in-law - are far less likely to divorce.

    Researchers have found that after 16 years of marriage men who make the effort with them have a 20 per cent higher chance of staying wed.

    In a surprising contrast, in cases where the wife is close to her in-laws, the couple have a 20 per cent higher chance of breaking up.

    If you don't stay wed/married, then you divorce. If you and your spouse break up, you probably, but not necessarily, divorce.
