Abstract

High divorce rates and the traditionally discrepant ages at death for husbands and wives indicate a need for a more complete understanding of the paths to remarriage in contemporary America. This study uses data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census’ Current Population Survey to examine the extent and timing of remarriage, social factors associated with remarriage, and the impact of the event - divorce or widowhood - which receded remarriage. The analysis is primarily descriptive, indicating how remarriage experience is influenced by several demographic variables of interest. Length of first marriage, age at divorce or widowhood, age at first marriage, number of children from first marriage, and education are all found to be relevant factors in the assessment of one’s likelihood and timing of remarriage.
