    Divorce and marriage newsAs another year comes to a close, it’s always interesting to revisit divorce and marriage news, particularly statistics about divorce and remarriage. There will be plenty of lists of celebs who got hitched and split up, but this post looks at the behavior of “normal” couples and individuals nationwide.

    Want to avoid divorce? Don’t move to Florida!

    The American Community Survey, with calculations by the Daily Beast, compiled a list of the top 10 divorce capitals of the United States. Research from Brown University concluded that the cultural and political identities of states may influence residents’ marriage patterns. These are the states and cities with the highest divorce rates:

    1. Panama City, FL
    2. Sierra Vista, AZ
    3. Charleston, WV
    4. Medford, OR
    5. Reno, NV
    6. Deltona, FL
    7. Pueblo, CO
    8. Palm Bay, FL
    9. Jacksonville, FL
    10. Grand Junction, CO

    These results seem very surprising, with major hubs like New York City and Los Angeles conspicuously missing from the list. Maybe couples in such cosmopolitan cities are less likely to get married, instead choosing cohabitation and raising children without the bonds of matrimony. Not surprisingly, the latest research has found that a record number of Americans have never married.

    Want to stay married? Stay in school

    A longitudinal survey found that college graduates are more likely to get married and stay married. One-quarter of college graduates divorce by the time they reach middle age.

    Education is one of the biggest contributing factors to the success of a marriage. People who have less than a college education are more likely to divorce for two reasons: They tend to marry at a younger age, and they are less financially sound than peers with college degrees.

    Want to get remarried? Older men are more likely to wed again

    Four in 10 new marriages involve remarriage of at least one half of the couple. Two in 10 new marriages were remarriages for both spouses, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of newly released data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Pew states:

    This increase has been fueled by several demographic trends, beginning with the rise in divorce, which has made more Americans available for remarriage. It has also been fueled by the overall aging of the population, which not only increases the number of widows and widowers available to remarry, but means people quite simply have more years in which to make, dissolve and remake unions. Combined, these two trends have created a larger pool of people who can potentially remarry.

    Remarriage rates are rising for adults 55 and older and, overall, women are less willing than men to walk down the aisle a second time.
