Remarriage - Conclusion

theory family family stepfamilies women remarried

Although divorce is prevalent in many countries of the world, people are not remaining single after a problematic marriage. Both men and women are remarrying, or at least cohabiting, at high rates. However, it appears that women who can financially support themselves choose not to remarry as frequently as other women. Although first marriages and remarriages are similar in many respects, remarried husbands and wives are more liberated from traditional sex roles than spouses in first marriages. The high rates of remarriage and recoupling suggest that men and women continue to seek to find a compatible partner with whom to share daily life.
