Statistics on Divorced Peope Who Remarry

Insurance statistics point out these trends: Most divorced persons who remarry do so within a few years after the dissolution of their last marriage. According to the experience in New York State, about three-tenths remarry the year the divorce is granted, about one-half within the space of two years, and three-fourths before the lapse of five years. However, remarriages do occur even after 20 years, but these account for only 1 or 2 percent of the total divorced who remarry. About 40% of those who divorce and remarry may have their second marriage again end in divorce. (Encyclopedia of 15,000 Illustrations - 2739).
