How your breakup is going to go, in one chart

How your breakup is going to go, in one chart

Breakups suck, and there are certainly some depressing factoids in the above infographic on them. But there’s some encouraging findings too. Only 18-22 percent of breakups are due to cheating, for instance, and 94.6 percent of people die having been married at least once (not always a good thing, but often one!). Then again, 56 percent of adults are unsatisfied with their sex lives, in case you were getting too upbeat about things. Happy New Year!

Click “Know More” to read Lee Byron, who co-created the infographic with David McCandless, on where he got this information. Hat-tip to Raju Narisetti.
