The number of remarried people is three times greater than it was in 1960. According to a 2013 analysis by the Pew Research Center, 42 million Americans reported being married more than once. And around one in five of the people surveyed who were divorced or widowed reported wanting to remarry in the future. The challenges of weaving two separate lives into a marriage require work. And remarrying comes with additional challenges that need to be addressed. Differing parenting styles, daily routines, financial obligations, legal matters, and relationships with other people can all make remarriage much more difficult.
