          Dr. Phil Tells A 53-Year-Old Why Marrying His 24-Year-Old Fiancée Has A High Risk For Divorce


          October 24, 2017

          David says he has great chemistry with his fiancée, Brooke, and is excited to marry her in a month.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Dr. Phil, please solve our conflict!

          But this will be the 53-year-old’s third marriage and Brooke is 29 years his junior – which, according to statistics, doesn’t bode well for a successful marriage.

          “For third marriage, your chance of getting divorced is seven out of 10,” Dr. Phil tells the couple on Friday’s episode. “If there’s a 10-year age gap 39 percent; a 20-year age gap, 95 percent; a 30-year age gap 172 percent likelihood of divorce.”
