5 Reasons why Second Marriages end in Divorce


Today we want to provide 5 reasons why second marriages end in divorce. Second marriages often end in divorce, and the reasons vary. However, the most common reason is that it is simply easier to give up on marriage the second time around. According to divorce experts, 70% of people who divorce their first spouse decide to remarry. Nearly 30% of all marriages now involve at least one party who has already been married at least once.

The stats show that men tend to remarry faster than women, and Caucasians remarry at the highest rate compared to Asians and African Americans. Unfortunately, second marriages rarely last more than 8 years. Some couples have even stated that you can complete divorce online.

Top 5 Reasons Many Second Marriages End in Divorce

While fifty percent of first marriages end in divorce, 67% of second marriages and 74% of third marriages fail to have a happily-ever-after. The reasons second and third marriages seem so doomed include the following:

1. Sex, Money and Interfering In-Laws

Many second marriages end up in divorce because of The Big Three: sexual incompatibility, money problems, and interfering in-laws. Experts claim that during a second or third marriage, sexual issues become more transparent, and spouses tend to compare their sex experiences.

Money issues often arise over child support, alimony, and voluntary contributions to first families. In-law tensions may double when existing in-laws compete against the new spouse for their child’s time and attention.

2. Fights Over Children

Children are often cited as the main reason first marriages stay together, but kids play a different role in second marriages. New spouses usually have highly charged relationships with their step-children, and other parenting ideas can generate tension in a marriage.

Children often don’t get along with the kids from a different marriage, and problems frequently arise between spouses if they feel they are not supported in the decisions they make about disciplining step-children.

3. Resentments Between an Ex-Spouse and a Current One

Some ex-spouses are perfectly happy to see their former spouses remarry, but others may become resentful. The resentments often lead to renewed family court trips to renegotiate alimony, child support, and visitation rights.

Ex-spouses often force their former spouses into court to negotiate even the simplest agreements. Some even turn their children against a former spouse or the new spouse.

4. Being Uninvested in the New Marriage

Surprisingly, a new spouse might decide to stay uninvested in a second marriage. Often, the first marriage led to kids, long-term family relationships, and memories that may date back to primary school. It is hard to work up a lot of concern for a new marriage with no children or long-standing ties.

It is easier to give up on the marriage than deal with constant bickering and fighting when things go south. Divorce simply is not as scary the second time, and new family problems are easy to shed because the basic emotional investment in the new marital relationship is lacking.

5. Married for the Wrong Reasons

Feeling lonely or needing a breadwinner or housekeeper are very poor reasons to get married. However, many divorced people marry for the wrong reasons. These include:

  • Financial security
  • Companionship or sex
  • Making a former spouse jealous
  • Fear of being alone
  • Rebounding
  • Temporary infatuation with someone very different from the former spouse.

Any reason for getting married other than love quickly wanes. Infatuations fade, and loneliness exists even in a marriage. Rushing from one failed relationship into another is never a good reason for tying the knot.

Get Premarital Counseling

Before getting remarried, the best strategy for a successful second marriage is to seek premarital counseling and financial planning. Divorce statistics are not encouraging for second or third marriages, and a little advance planning might head you off from making (another) big mistake.

Heidi Klum and Seal Officially Divorced


Heidi Klum and Seal are officially divorced.

According to E! News, a Los Angeles judge approved the former couple’s divorce papers and entered the information into the government’s system.

This news comes after the supermodel and singer filed for divorce in April 2012 and agreed on a settlement this past July. 

In a joint statement, Klum and Seal discussed their separation: “This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition. We thank our family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support. And for our children’s sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy.”

Since their separation, the two celebrities, who have three children together, have been amiable. Klum casually chatted about Seal during an interview on Ellen, stating, “He does travel a lot, but when he’s in town he tries to come by all the time.”

Klum, who is currently dating art dealer Vito Schnabel, certainly seems to be keeping positive in spite of the divorce!

Bravo to Heidi and Seal for remaining poised after their divorce. If only all separated couples could remain this civil!

Iggy Azalea’s Husband Wants a Divorce


First things first, I’m— wait, she’s married?
It’s a surprise to everyone that Iggy Azalea’s Husband wants a divorce, but it’s safer to say it’s an even bigger surprise because no one got the memo that the rapping Australian bombshell was even married— not even Azalea herself! Main reason being her highly publicized relationship with basketball player, Nick Young, for the past year.
It’s not cheating if she’s denying she was ever married, right?

According to TMZ Azalea’s ex, Maurice Williams aka Hefe Wine, claims that the pair were in a common law marriage and “”agreed to be married, holding themselves out as man and wife and began residing together in the State of Texas on or around September, 2008.”
When TMZ catches up with Azalea in the airport, she makes it clear that this incident is a complete sham. She even took to Twitter with a mini rant to set the record straight:

It’s clear Azalea wants nothing to do with her ex and just wants to concentrate on her current relationship and her music.

Case Closed.

Nick Cannon Covers Up Mariah Tattoo


Tattoo my name on you so I know it’s real— and then get it covered up because we’re no longer together…
There is officially no denying that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are over and done with after the stunts these two pulled this week. In case you missed it, heres a play by play before Nick Cannon covers up Mariah tattoo:
Carey, during a concert in Tokyo, changed the lyrics to Billie Holiday’s ‘Don’t Explain’ from “And I know you cheat/right or wrong, it don’t matter” to what sounds like “I know you cheated motherf***er.” Take a listen to the audio obtained by TMZ, what do you think?
Was this in fact a dig at Nick Cannon? This fiery side of Carey surfaces amid divorce rumors, which were confirmed only by Cannon in late August, and now there’s alleged cheating. Don’t be fooled, Carey isn’t the only on making waves in the water, Cannon seems to be fighting fire with fire. Earlier this week, Cannon bid adieu to his ode to Mariah on his back— her name tattooed in giant letters; now covered up with an even larger tattoo of Jesus on the cross.
It’s clear that the two are definitely headed for divorce. After only six weeks of dating before they tied the knot, many were skeptical when this relationship began. Six years and two kids later, twins Moroccan (Roc) and Monore (Roe), it looks like this love story has come to an end.

Paula Patton Files For Divorce From Robin Thicke


It’s officially over. Paula Patton filed for divorce from Robin Thicke.

According to People, on October 3, Patton filed the divorce papers in Los Angeles, stating “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their failed marriage. The Precious actress also asked for joint custody of the pair’s 4-year-old son, Julian Fuego.

Patton and Thicke had met when he was only 14 years old and later married in 2005, but recently their 9-year marriage has been falling apart. After the announcement of their separation in February, Thicke has publicly apologized to his wife. In March, People reported the “Blurred Lines” singer stating, “I want everybody here to know that I’m trying to get my girl back.” Thicke even titled his latest album, Paula, after his wife.

Unfortunately, it seems his public apologies were not met with forgiveness.

And just what was Thicke apologizing for? It’s unclear. According to Time, Thicke stated, “I told my wife the truth. That’s why she left me.”

Maybe his rumored drug and alcohol abuse has something to do with the divorce. According to Time, Thicke also said, “Every day I woke up, I would take a Vicodin to start the day and then I would fill up a water bottle with vodka and drink it before and during my interviews.”

Or the divorce could have something to do with the rumors of his infidelity; ever since he performed with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Music Video Awards last summer, people have speculated how faithful Thicke has been to his wife.

Whatever the reason, surely this is a difficult time for both Thicke, Patton, and their young son.

Amber Rose Files for Divorce from Wiz Khalifa


Another one bites the dust. Hollywood marriages just don’t seem to be lasting these days. After Kris and Bruce Jenner filing for divorce and then Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey following behind them, who would have known that one of Rap’s favorite couples would have been the next to call it quits, as Amber Rose files for divorce from Wiz Khalifa. Just two weeks ago Rose posted a photo from their wedding on Instagram wishing Khalifa a happy birthday with the caption:
“Happy 27th Birthday @mistercap I’ll love u forever…. Hope this year is an amazing one for u sweetheart ❤️”

However, there seems to be more trouble in paradise than the two let on. The model filed for divorce on September 22 based on documents obtained by TMZ and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the dissolution of marriage, but there are swirling rumors that cheating is the culprit for this marriage ending after only one year.

The cheating rumors are swirling on both sides. Amber has been accused of being unfaithful too. Twitter followers came swarming after the news of the split between Rose and Khalifa surfaced and Nick Cannon became the center of attention. With the divorce being filed shortly after Cannon becoming the manager for Rose it was rumored the two were hooking up, but an inside source tells E! News that the couple (Rose and Khalifa) has “had marital issues for some time now.”
Amber took to Twitter to address the rumors and set the story straight on her behalf:



With the divorce papers in place, Rose is putting all of her energy into moving on and gaining full custody of their son, Sebastian. As for Khalifa, he has yet to make any comments regarding cheating rumors or the divorce, but he has been fairly active on Twitter since the news of the divorce surfaced.
