Statistics have shown that in the U.S. 50% percent of first marriages, 67% of second, and 73% of third marriages end in divorce.  But why the progressively worse divorce record?  According to Israel Leo Averbach in his book "Breakup", the reasons are as follows:

 


Rebounds:  A large number of people remarry without first working through their issues.  They end up repeating the same mistakes.

Independence:  Men and women have gotten used to being alone.  They have become emotionally and financially protective. In essence, there is no real union or shared values.

Less Glue:  Parent-child, blended families are a source of conflict. Most children are born in the first marriage and second marriages don't tend to have children that glue a marriage together. The element of "family" is not central in the relationship. Moreover, bringing in children from another marriage tends to create more ungluing than gluing.

This sound right to me, but there is another huge number not mentioned.  The people who just never remarry after the 1st marriage, and then another large number who don't ever consider marrying again after the second..
