A study out of Radford University answers the age-old question of whether you should marry the person who works in particular line of job. These professions were identified by Michael Aamodt and Shawn McCoy as having an elevated divorce rate, based on US Census data.

I had re-post this because I know for some of you – you’re wondering… is it true? (LOL!)

15. Maids and housekeeping cleaners — 26.38% divorce rate
14. Roofers — 26.85% divorce rate
13. Waiters/waitresses — 27.12% divorce rate
12. Telemarketers — 28.10% divorce rate
11. Baggage porters and concierges — 28.49% divorce rate
10. Entertainers and performers, sports and related workers — 28.49% divorce
9. Nursing, psychiatric, and home health aides — 28.95% divorce rate
8. Telephone operators — 29.30% divorce rate
7. Factory workers: food & tobacco — 29.78% divorce rate
6. Gaming service worker — 31.35% divorce rate

3. Massage therapists — 38.22% divorce rate

I know you’re thinking if this is a gag. Nope. I don’t think Business Insider posts gags on their site unless they say so – and they aren’t.
