An educated guess implies you have real facts and statistics to back those up, or at least an understanding of the trends if not formally calculated; not a gut feeling.

Very few healthy marriages end in divorce so it's not always a bad thing. Most people will do everything they can think of to save a marriage before resorting to divorce.

not a gut feeling.
I never said it was a gut feeling. There are statistics and stuff that I've seen, but nothing concrete enough to consider "real" evidence. Therefore, it was an educated guess instead of undeniable fact.

Slow is right. It's a pretty common misconception that divorce is this horrible thing that ruins couples. There's usually a very good reason for people to have a divorce. And when there isn't, well, I don't know whay to say there.

First off, THC, I completely agree with your point.

However, I cannot allow your phrasing to pass me by...

There are statistics and stuff that I've seen, but nothing concrete enough to consider "real" evidence. Therefore, it was an educated guess
If you've seen 'nothing concrete enough to consider "real" evidence' you shouldn't claim to be making an 'educated' guess as your knowledge on the matter has clearly not been exercised. In simple terms: "I've not seen any evidence but my statement is undeniably well-read". It can't get more contradictory than that, my friend.

"I've not seen any evidence but my statement is undeniably well-read".
But I have seen evidence. Just not enough to use as a source for my point. And I didn't say it was undeniable.

But if you can't source it, how reliable is that information.

As you can see, I even mentioned it's lack of reliability. Why not ask Andy about this? He agreed with my statement, but also hasn't presented evidence himself. To make sure there are no misunderstandings in what I mean of him agreeing me, here is the quote.

I'd think that divorce would only be a last resort option.

there's also the fact that the divorce statistic accounts for ALL divorces as compared to marriages not just FIRST TIME divorces so it'll account for those people who go through like 50 different marriages in their whole lives, keep that in mind

@THC if you're going to claim that this is an educated guess "based on reasoning" what is the reasoning you need to at least say/source it, i mean you can't just come in and say "i think x. my sources are unreliable so i'm not going to show them. but i still have reasoning behind it" like bro that doesnt fly, either give your reasoning and/or sources or stop assuming you know The Truth (TM) and tryin to tell everyone why your truth is objectively superior, it's gettin real old real fast

but i dont give a shit since i hid off topic, i just am here on a whim

How many times have I said this? What I'm saying isn't the objective truth! I've said that multiple times! I've said that it was likely to be wrong, but it was just my standpoint!
It's very possible (and likely) that I'm wrong
I don't think my opinion is superior to anyone else's. No one has even said anything that doesn't coincide with what I said, and if someone did, I would trust their opinion on this matter more than mine.

My only issue is with the phrase 'educated guess' as it clearly isn't such, as the nature of your previous statements suggest.

Isn't it like saying,

"During the time I've been around you, you seem like a complete dipshit, but I'm​ not sure as I don't know your IQ."

Correct me if I messed up somewhere.

A truly educated guess cannot have unreliable sources. The end

You don't need a comma before 'but'
