Re: Advice for one about to be re-married

These were the most cureent statistics I could find. Although they are not broken down by age, race, so on, I believe the stats to be accurate.

June 11, 2003

“Fifty percent of first marriages, 67 percent of second and 74 percent
of third marriages end in divorce, according to Jennifer Baker of the
Forest Institute of Professional Psychology in Springfield, Missouri.”"67+percent+of+second+and+74+percent+of+third+marriages+end+in+divorce+"++Jennifer+Baker&hl=es

“95 percent of all divorced people eventually remarry . . . 76 per
cent of second marriages fail within five years . . . .87 per cent of
third marriages fail and 93 per cent of fourth marriages end in
divorce within five years.”

Fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. Sixty-seven percent of all
second marriages end in divorce.”

Let me also reiterate, I am not anti marriage. I would certainly prefer to be a married person over an single mom with three small sons. But, if one is to remarry, just as others have said and I also agree, you must put forth much effort to overcome previous flaws that brought on the demise of the first marriage.
