When you'll get dumped

Jezebel links to some interesting research predicting the calendar time frames when you're most likely to get dumped.

The conclusions are based on a highly scientific tool: Facebook status updates.

The results? Your significant other is likely to break up with you right before Spring Break or two weeks before Christmas.

On the positive side, few people are willing to break up with someone on Christmas Day.

Thursday's nightlife column will discuss if there's ever a "good" time to break up with somebody, at least as far as the calendar is concerned.

In the meantime, answer this: What, if anything, would it take for you to break up with someone on Dec. 25?
