Prince William And Kate Middleton Share The Same Age - Psychology Has An Interesting View On This

Date June 6, 2018

Same-age marriages are not rare. As people have their brightest and most active years during their schooling, they often meet their future spouses in schools, colleges, and universities. A royal couple, William and Kate, is not an exception! Their age difference is only 5 months.

When they first saw each other, they probably had no idea they would have three babies together and become the example of a perfect marriage.

So, what should their relationship expect for the the future? And will their bond will be long-lasting? Psychology has an assumption.

Millions of people watched their wedding ceremony, and now they are all watching their married life, wondering if they are as happy as they look in the photos!

There are several signs which show the possibility of a long-lasting and happy marriage, and the age difference between spouses is one of them.

Dr. Randy Olson, the lead data scientist at Life Epigenetics, carried out a research about the correlation between the age gap and divorce.

He concluded that the bigger age gap between a husband and a wife, the more likely they are to end up in divorce.

Being the same age is, according to the study, perfect if you want to live happily ever after. Catherine and William were born in the same year, Prince William - on June 21, 1982, while Catherine – on January 9, 1982.

Dr. Olson could also questioned whether the same education level would be a good reason for successful relationships. The result of the study concluded it is so.

The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge were the students of St. Andrew’s University when they first met.

They became friends at once, shared a few classes and lunches in St. Salvator's Hall, while Catherine had a boyfriend from the senior course at that time.

The beginning of their story became a perfect background for strong and supportive relationships.

With no romantic intentions, they got the chance to get to know each other pretty well at first, before the sparkle kindled between them. Same age or not, maybe this is the secret to their happiness.
