365 Days of Twinipedia - Day 98

Day Ninety-eight of Twinipedia Facts

Fact #98
We were sad to read that the belief that parents of twins are more likely to divorce than non-twin parents is actually partially true.  The's article on strange facts about twins stated that "It seems that twins can help unravel a marriage".  Doctors at Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital have studied couples who have had twins and stated that "When a couple's only children are twins, parents are only about 1% more likely to get divorced than parents of singletons. But add in more kids (or less income), and the risk of divorce shoots up. The reason is probably the added stress, both financial and emotional."
