Divorce Lawyer Gives 75 Percent Chance Trumps Will Split

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Newlyweds Donald Trump and Melania Knauss are probably divorcing themselves from the idea of divorce, but a marriage handicapper says there’s a 75 percent chance they’ll split.

Divorce lawyer Beverly Pekala says national averages show that the chance of a second marriage working out is less than 50 percent, while a third marriage is less than 25 percent.

This is Trump’s third marriage, and that’s why she gives the couple less than seven years.

Another duo that’s likely to split is Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Pekala says there’s between a 50 and 75 percent chance they’ll break up before five years because he’s been married twice and she’s been married three times, had a failed engagement to Ben Affleck, and a long-term commitment to P. Diddy.

Finally, if separated Hollywood sweethearts Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were to get back together, Pekala gives them less than 50-50 odds to stay that way.
