Pre-marital sex is going to decide a lot in your marriage in the future. The number of partners you are in bed with has been found to show if your marriage will last and how long will it be before you get divorced.

According to a report in BravoTV, a study done by Professor Nicholas H. Wolfinger from the University of Utah said that the divorce rate was highest for those who had at least 10 sexual partners before marriage. The study is true only for the past few years and two decades back. Before 2000, women with at least two sexual partners had a higher divorce rate but women who were virgins till they got married had the least number of divorce rates.

The study also found that the number of divorces is linked to religion. People who went to church frequently had lesser divorce rates than those who didn’t go to church.
