# Mathematical Formula to Ensure Success in a Relationship

Mathematical Formula to Ensure Success in a Relationship

Enduring relationship = Love (B*d) + Compatibility (sexual: emotional: intellectual: shared sense of humor) + financial assets +/- The In-law Factor x Child stress(ⁿ) + Satisfaction quotient / time

(B*d): This factor takes into account the fact that love tends to be blind and must therefore be heavily discounted.

1. (n): The number of children exponentially contributes to stress in a relationship.
2. The In-law factor usually calculates to a negative value, except in very rare circumstances when the In-law is incredibly wealthy.
3. Time. It is axiomatic that over time things change. For better or for worse

Given these factors, the odds against endurance are a long shot at best.

I’ll buy you a diamond ring, my friend,

If it makes you satisfied.

I’ll get you anything my friend,

If it keeps you by my side.

But I don’t care too much for money,

Cause money can’t buy me love

(The Beatles: Can’t Buy Me Love)
