John Lennon died in 1980. He and Yoko Ono were married in 1969.

2009 - 1980 = 29
1980 - 1969 = 11
29 - 11 = 18

So 18 years.

Lennon died on December 8, 1980
Married Ono on March 20, 1969
Today is February 19, 2009

The marriage lasted ROUGHLY 11 years and 8 months
Lennon has been dead 28 years and 3 months

I'm coming up with somewhere in the neighborhood of 16.60 years.

Zbeckabee wins the arithmetic prize. When calculating time spans, particularly when the events occur at distinctly different times of the year, it is not very accurate to just consider the year part of the date. For example, the time lapse between Christmas 2008 and New Year's Day 2009 is significantly less than a year. The calculation based on number of months is much more accurate. We could go as far as calculating the number of days (since not all months have the same number of days), but that might be getting a little ridiculous!

This is a good example of excessive rounding leading to an inaccurate answer to a calculation.
