The seven-year study of 37,000 employees at 1,500 workplaces provides empirical evidence that working with people of the opposite sex is hazardous to your marriage. Working with co-workers who are all of the opposite sex increases the divorce rate by a startling 70 percent, compared with an office filled with co-workers of the same sex. Whether the co-workers were single or married had no impact, says author Yvonne Aberg, now a research fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford University, England
Does this mean that the marriage of Kirsten and Sandy Cohen on The OC is doomed now that that lawyer temptress woman is going after Sandy at the office?
This is an argument for bringing back politically incorrect single-sex schools. Kids are distracted by those of the opposite sex. Homosexuals are a more complicated case though. One could not send homosexual males to a female school because if more than one homosexual male was sent to the same school they'd be attracted to each other. It is a lot easier to separate sexually distractable heterosexuals than to do the same with homosexuals.
