Are you married to your “soul mate”? Do you even believe in the idea of a soul mate?

More do than don’t and in fact, two-thirds of U.S. adults believe in the concept of soul mates where “two people are destined to be together,” according to a Marist Poll on love, marriage and soul mates.

Those kind of relationships can often burn hot and fast and destiny is denied and ends up on the rocks.

While they likely will be very happy at first because of their intense emotional and personal connection, such unions have a high risk of disenchantment and divorce for the simple reason that it’s almost impossible to sustain such intensity for the long haul.

Who believes in soul mates? According to the Marist Poll:

  • 66% of Americans believe in the idea of soul mates, which is defined as two people who are destined to be together.
  • Southerners, more than any other region of the United States, are most likely to believe in soul mates with 69% of women and 63% of men buying into it.
  • 73% of young people ages 18 to 29 believe in soul mates, compared with 62% of those 60 and older.
  • 95% of the survey respondents said they were sure they had married the right person.
