Open Access Graduate Research Paper
It is estimated that 60% of all first marriages in the United States end in divorce (Pasley, Dollahite & Ihinger-Tallman, 1993). Worthington & Hong (1992) suggested that 75-80% of all divorced persons remarry, and that remarried families are the fastest growing type of family in the United States. One out of five marriages is a remarriage for one or both spouses (Ganong & Coleman, 1989). Visher and Visher (1982) identified a trend indicating that 45 % of families would be single-parent or remarried families by 1990. These statistics are important because they represent a significant number of the families within the United States.
