How do I calculate quarters since a specific date

Hi Experts,  I wonder if anyone can help with a Javascript query.  

I have a date that comes in from a database and I would like to determine the amount of quarters since that date using Javascript (1 quarter = three months) .
(However, the date comes in as text so it may need to be converted to a date format first).

eg:
var startDate = 'dd-mm-yy'

Could we have the result as an integer, so it only counts a quarter if the difference in the date is a full three months?

Thanks in advance for your help

Regards Joe.
