A remarriage occurs when a previously married person marries again. This fact sheet reviews information regarding remarriage patterns, trends and issues in the United States. Please note that this fact sheet is limited because the national surveys and databases that allowed for analyses of marriage patterns no longer exist (Kreider, 2005). Thus, much of this data is dated to the early 2000s. Unless otherwise noted, the information from this Fact Sheet is from information reported by R.M. Kreider in Current Population Reports.
