Divorce Rates

Currently in the United States, the average for 1st marriages to end in divorce is over 50%. However, 75% of those divorced will re-marry in 3-5 years.

Those who are on their 2nd or 3rd marriages risk a 62-68% chance of ending their marriage in divorce.

The two main reasons why divorce rates for 2nd-3rd marriages are high:

1). Couples are dealing with un-resolved baggage. They often times are repeating the same mistakes from their previous relationships.

2). Many of the couples lack good conflict resolution skills.  Often times, additional conflict comes with blending families in the best of circumstances.

Have you divorced and then re-married? What kinds of things are you doing to help 
protect and safeguard your marriage?
