Happy to be in the 12% or 20% whatever. Not sure who "Cooper" is ( Billy's fictional husband on NetFlix?) or how he collected these statistics for his "book". Evidently the book needed some "data" to confirm it's predetermined conclusions. Only a few of us happy people post to TAM, and doubt many happy people are responding to some random guy's polling.I’d say about 20% of TAMers are happy in their marriages. 80% are miserable and are white knuckling it. In line with the statistics of the overall population. Cooper wrote in his book that a survey found that only about 12% of the married population were in marital bliss. 88% are divorced or unhappy or meh. House odds? Not a chance. The casino has only a 54/47 house advantage in blackjack. The marital game is rigged that almost nobody wins….until divorce.
