44%

Someone once told me that 44% of TFA men end up marrying TFA women.

It seems like an absurd number, and I feel silly even letting myself wonder if it’s true. Who would have that information, anyway? I doubt “are you currently married/engaged to be married to a TFA alumnus?” is a question on any TFA alum surveys (but please, correct me if I’m wrong).

But if it is true… somehow I think I must only have access to the other 56%.

… just sayin’.

    I don’t remember it being a direct question, but I think there is a way to extrapolate from the information they do ask you for?

    I had 7 good guy friends in my corps. 3 are married to other TFA. So, my small sample is, oddly enough, 43%, so almost the stat you heard.

    My boyfriend and I are both part of the 2011 corps, so if we get married I suppose that statistic would apply to us.
