Selected research and theoretical writings, published in the 1970s, on divorce, remarriage, and desertion were reviewed. Particular emphasis was focused on variables (demographic and interpersonal) related to divorce, divorce adjustment, probability of remarriage, and the dynamics of remarriage. Data presented confirm some previous findings but challenge others. Implications of the noninstitutionalized status of divorce, remarriage, and desertion, and suggestions for research in the 1980s are included.
