New Study Says My Marriage Is Almost Perfect!

A new study of 2,000 adults has determined the best husband and wife names. has ranked these names by the positive virtues associated with each name. The theory being, that these positive attributes (for example, kindness) make for a longer lasting marriage. My husband and I hit the marital jackpot. David ranked number 1 on the top husbands list and Sophie number 2 on the top wives list. If only I was named Katie…

Can we attribute marriage success to a name? I call bullshit. (And not simply because Dave ranked higher than Sophie.) There are hundreds of Davids I wouldn’t recommend marrying. I can’t imagine that David Hasselhoff or David Duke would be considered ideal husbands. The “perfect” marriage is not simply made from two kind and caring people. Our marriage success will be determined by our compatibility, attraction, and compassion for each other. Our names are awesome though.
