Oscar Wilde wrote, "Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience." The Irish writer had a good point. People who are widowed or, specifically, divorced know that marriage isn’t always a fairy tale, and it doesn’t always end happily. But that doesn’t stop people from trying again, particularly as they grow older.
Statistics show that 67% of those ages 55 to 64 who were previously wed will remarry. But there’s another sobering statistic these couples should consider. On paper, at least, they are more likely than not to experience another marriage upheaval, which is why you and your partner should sit down and ask each some questions before giving marriage a go again.
