I'm beginning to suspect that seven years is the average of the length of marriage for divorces only.

How long do marriages last and how quickly do people remarry? Table 8, profiling the marital experience of the population as of 2009, shows that first marriages which ended in divorce lasted a median of 8 years for men and women overall. The median time from marriage to separation was shorter--about 7 years.

Seven years is the average length of divorce.

7 years is average for the first marriage. Second is even shorter...
