Marriage Statistics

The marriage statistics from the USA government is revealing: more women marry for the first time than men. That is about 25% of women who marry for the first time will marry a man on this second marriage. And while the divorce rate of first marriages is 50% for women and men in their first marriage, the overall divorce rate of the entire population is low. So a man on his second marriage has to learn from his first marriage or he can be on to this third marriage. The low divorce rate of the entire population means the younger generation can avoid divorce by choosing more astutely and bring down the divorce rate among first time marrieds.
