Why are you and your partner so incompatible after saying “I do?” Did you know that 41 percent of first marriages end in divorce and that 60% of second marriages end in divorce. And 73% of third marriages end in divorce. This is all according to Psychology Today’s statistics. Why the increasing rate, when it would make more sense to see people becoming better equipped to choose a partner as they become older and seemingly wiser?
There are other studies which have shown divorce rates are even higher for second and third marriages than the figures cited above, but these figures are high enough to be concerning. Unfortunately, there are no real statistics that site why the majority of these marriages fail.
