While we're quibbling for the fun of it ...

There's also the special case of "marriage ends with both dying effectively simultaneously in the same event." e.g. a mongo car crash.

The poignancy of the original "100% of marriages end in death or divorce" saying is that one or both of them will live through the end of their marriage and have to go through being a survivor of that nasty transition. My special case points out where neither get to live through (much of) the end of their marriage and there's no survivorship to speak of. Thereby defeating much of the poignancy of the saying.
