There might be an ideal age gap between you and your beau. According to a study at Emory University in Atlanta, the more years you’ve got in your age gap, the higher the likelihood that it won’t last. If you have a decade between you, you’re 39 per cent more likely to split up while a five-year difference brings down the percentage to 18. Researchers found that your best bet is a one year age gap with only a three per cent chance of calling it quits. However, Emory researchers admit that there are other factors to consider such as the basic concept of compatibility.
