You should have to take a test.

It seems that research has suggested that there is an equation that will predict with 94% certainty whether or not a couple will be divorced. This would certainly take some of the romance out of marriage, especially on the eve of Valentine’s Day. When you go to get a marriage licence, perhaps you could just take a test. If you pass, then you get the license, otherwise you go home empty handed. Maybe it’s just me, but I’d hate to reduce love to pure math. I think there’s a little chemistry in there too, and I’m willing to take my chances.
