Increase in number of live-in couples reducing remarriage rates

Washington, Sept. 16 : A new study has revealed that the remarriage rate in the US has declined by 40 percent over the past 20 years, as more and more couples are choosing cohabitation over marriage.


In the study, comparisons were made between the federal data of 1990, where 50 of every 1,000 divorced or widowed Americans had married again, and of 2011, where a mere 29 of every 1,000 divorced or widowed Americans remarried, the Huffington Post reported.

While explaining the recent trend, Sociologist Susan Brown, the lead author of the analysis, said that the rising number of couples opting for cohabitation could be the reason.

Brown said that cohabitation has opened up options for people that weren't there 20 years ago.

She added that living together affords the benefits of marriage without the legal constraints.
