Why Get Married?

Love Graph
Among divorced adults, only 29% say they would like to marry again, with women more likely than men to say they do not want another trip down the aisle. Among widowed men and women, only 8% want to wed again.

Of those surveyed, 96 percent of men said they wouldn’t spend anywhere near $1,000 in order to find their perfect match. A mere 65 percent of men want to be in a relationship at all, in contrast to 76 percent of women.

The divorce rate for first marriages — meaning a marriage in which neither person has been married before — is reportedly between 40 and 50%. But for second marriages, in which at least one of the spouses has been married once before, the rate jumps to between 60 and 67%. And for third marriages (at least one of the spouses has been married twice before), it’s a whopping 70-73%.
