The decision to end a marriage is never an easy one. The decision to remarry may be even harder to make. If you are divorced and are thinking about remarriage, you most probably will be concerned with how this decision will impact your life, your finances, the lives of any children you may have, and more.
A new analysis of federal data provided exclusively to USA Today shows the USA’s remarriage rate has dropped 40 percent over the past 20 years. The analysis was performed by the National Center for Family & Marriage Research at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. The analysis of data comparing 2011 with 1990 shows that in 2011, just 29 of every 1,000 divorced or widowed Americans remarried, down from 50 per 1,000 in 1990; 2011 was the most recent year available for the review.
