His bride, Amal Alamuddin, a human rights attorney. Why do people fall in love? Can we predict which marriages will last? These questions can be answered with a look at birth order.
Love At First Sight
There are two types of love at first sight. The first is when you meet someone with your same birth order. You are so much alike. The problem with this match is that you are so much alike you try to occupy the same space. One of you must step aside and let the other shine. You can only have one image in a mirror at the same time.
The more lasting love is when you meet someone that matches a sibling in your family of the opposite gender, and you match one of theirs. You will both understand each other since you had a sibling with the same gender and birth order.
George is a Second Born
George has a sister two years older than himself. He must have easily dethroned his older sibling Adelia Zeidler as she did not compete with him. She became a wife and mother and stayed in Kentucky close to their parents. Not close to George, she was unaware of his first marriage. They do e-mail each other. George was an athlete in high school and even tried out to play professional baseball with the Cincinnati Reds. One trait of the Second born is that they don’t like others telling them what to do. This may be why he has stayed unmarried without children. It may also be why he considers himself antiestablishment and explains the political stands he takes. He likes standing up for the underdog by challenging a government or an individual. You never have a second chance to make a good impression with a second born. Having had a few confrontations with directors he is now more comfortable running his own production company. He would be attracted to a #2 like himself but his ideal mate would be a #1 like his sister, especially if she had a #2 younger brother.
First Marriage a Two/Only Double Birth Order
He married Talia Balsam in 1989. She has an older half-brother Thomas Casey King 8yrs older from her mother’s first marriage. This gives Talia two birth orders. She is a Second born but also has the power of the Only birth order because of all the nurturing she received at home while her older brother was in school. This really “powers up” her #2 birth order. The attraction for George was her #2 traits. She continued her career as an actress and did not give it up or “step out of the mirror”, neither did George. With the added power of the Only characteristics she was the one in charge, not George. The marriage lasted only 4yrs.
Amal Alamuddin a Firstborn
Amal is the firstborn and has a younger sister Tala. I don’t know Tala’s date of birth but she does have a 12yr old daughter. I assume she is no more than 2yrs younger than Amal. This makes Amal a #1 birth order and it does not look like she has been dethroned by her younger sister. Like all birth orders, Firstborns have two sides. As a #1 she can be either domineering by giving orders or she gets her way by being nurturing and supportive. Let’s hope this is her type because George does not like to be told what to do.
Will the Marriage Last?
With the divorce rate above 50% this is a question to which everyone wants an answer. It looks like George has matched his childhood family birth order as his sister was a #1. Amal comes close but the #2 in her family was a girl not a boy. She will have a harder time understanding George, especially when he wants time with his buddies. This match is very close to the ideal birth order combination. It has an excellent chance of lasting a lifetime.
