An Estimated Six Percent of Americans Remarry - To Each Other


An Estimated Six Percent of Americans Remarry – To Each Other

When people face the prospect of a divorce, many of the spouses involved in this difficult process simply want the issue to be resolved as quickly as possible so that they can move on with their lives separately.  However, some divorces turn out to be extremely amicable, to the point where those who were involved in the original divorce case eventually decide to remarry each other.  This is a growing trend according to a recent study.

Noted psychology professor Nancy Kalish, who researched the topic for her book Lost & Found Lovers: Facts and Fantasies of Rekindled Romances, compiled the statistics over time and discovered that as many as six percent of divorced couples eventually decide to remarry each other.  This is much higher than what was previously thought, and it represents a new topic regarding divorce that will likely receive much in the way of attention from experts and researchers alike.

The findings have led to many different theories as to why this number is as high as it is.  Some of these theories include the fact that people can change over time and grow in a positive manner, some married couples realize that the divorce was a mistake and still others do not have a nasty and prolonged divorce fight to look back upon when they get to know each other during the post-divorce period.
