Project Abstract

In recent years, divorce rates have increased to 4% globally (Ortiz-Ospina & Roser, 2020). Although there are many reasons leading to a divorce, our research is focusing on the sexual aspects that contribute to it. Since insufficient studies have been done on this topic, we are offering a regression analysis on the impact of sexual frequency and satisfaction on marital status. We have consolidated and sifted out pertinent data needed from the National Survey of Families and Households, National Survey of Midlife Development in the US.
