Will You Ever Get Married Again, After a Divorce?

Oct 29, 2013

Often, divorce can leave you feeling lonely and unsure about dating again. Many people struggle to get past "just dating" after a divorce, but this doesn't have to last forever.

It's different for each party involved, especially if kids are involved, as well. Single parents tend to spend all their time with their kids, adjusting to having full custody and their new life. On the other hand, the parent not getting full custody must adjust to not seeing their kids and a completely new lifestyle, as well.

What is the Trend?

According to a report done by USA Today, only 29 out of every 1,000 widowed or divorced Americans remarried in 2001. This was down from 50 per 1,000 from 1990. OF course, this isn't all due to the divorce.

A Few Reasons People Remain Single After a Divorce

  • Financial Stress - Divorce is expensive and if you end up paying spousal support and child support, it may max you out quickly. This can make dating hard to afford and it can make the idea of a new marriage seem impossible.
  • Exhaustion - Divorce takes a physical toll as much as a mental toll. The emotional distress can cause exhaustion and the adjustments to a new life can, as well.
  • Trust - Maybe you felt burned in your first marriage due to infidelity or any other reason. This can make it hard to trust again.

What are the Chances You Remarry in Michigan?

There is a positive to take from all of this and from the divorce. Even though reports show that most individuals don't remarry quickly after divorce, this doesn't mean they never remarry.

When someone goes through a divorce, it can get messy and can hurt for years. However, that hurt will go away with help from a support group, good friends and therapy. Once the hurt subsides, the idea of remarrying can be very exciting.

Most individuals remarrying approach the second marriage in a different way. They may decide a prenuptial agreement is necessary or they may be a bit more careful about the person they choose to marry. Either way, the different approach can help lead to a more successful union the second time around.
