Its estimated that 30,000 couples were married on July 7, 2007 (7/7/2007). 7s show up in mythology and religion and the Number 7 is often considered to be lucky and magical. With 7/7/07 only happening one time during a century, 7/7/07 may be the busiest wedding date of the 21st century. Are these couples more likely to stay together than those not married on such a numerically significant date? That depends on whether you consider luck to have anything to do with a successful marriage. More people are likely to consider hard work, understanding, and common goals as the keystones to a long happy marriage. However, I believe that a little luck never hurt anyone. Especially because luck can help you side-step health and financial misfortune which sometimes can be a catalyst to the demise of a marriage. For those of you married on 7/7/2007, congratulations, and I hope that lady luck is on your side when it comes to a long marriage.
