If the Sinéad O'Connor breakup teaches us anything, it's the importance of numbers in life.
(Kids: do your math homework.)
Some reports indicate that Sinéad and Barry Herridge, the hapless 38-year-old therapist she wed earlier this month, broke up after 16 days of marriage.
Others say it was 18 days.
Meanwhile, Sinéad writes on her website that she knew the marriage – her fourth – was doomed three hours after she said "I Do."
Of course, it will take years to do a full panel of numerological reports – there's Christian eschatological numerology to consider, kabbalistic math to wrestle with, Leonardo da Vinci's geometrical visions to experience, John Dee's alchemical equations to ponder, Nostradamus' Numbers to decode and Dan Brownian conspiracies to thwart.
I'm not even a proper novice, but here's a preliminary expectoration prefatory to an introduction to the potential study of numerological factors in the collapse of Sinéad O'Connor's marriage.
