Hertrouw in Nederland: Sociaal-demografische determinanten van gehuwd en ongehuwd samenwonen na echtscheiding


  • Uunk,Wilfred




In this study we investigate the occurrence, timing and sociodemographic determinants of married and unmarried cohabitation after divorce in the Netherlands between 1970 and 1995. Event history analyses of life course data from two nationally representative household surveys show that remarriage occurs often and rather quickly after marital break-up. Remarriage chances strongly depend on demographic correlates: men, younger divorcees, divorcees in the nineties and eighties, and divorcees with children from first marriages have significantly higher chances of remarriage than other groups. Socioeconomic correlates matter less: although divorcees with a paid job and a higher job status remarry more often and more quickly than do jobless people or people with a lower status, remarriage chances do not covary with education.
