What we don't love so much is that after they hug (Bill thought Ted was dead), they break apart and shout "FAG! Ted "Theodore" Logan and Bill S Preston Esq are painted as loveable (if not always particularly bright) scamps, which is why we love them. The probability that they would make it 20 years was 52% for women and 56% for men, so that percentage is to the frequently-cited "half," but still not there.Other estimates show that three-quarters of those married in the 1990s would make it at least 15 years (compared with just 65% of those married in the 1980s).
