Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not really, as long as only 50% or marriages end in divorce (maybe false, but stated), you clearly have a distribution skewed to the right even if most of the 50% were of the serial variety. As serial as they might be (and I doubt that most of divorces are of the kind), they can't have a negative duration, whereas you can go way over 14 years.

It's 50% of marriages, remember, not of married people. So if someone were to get married and divorced 10 times within a year, you'd need 10 couples staying together until death to compensate just for him.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
