This study examines recent trends and future prospects regarding marriage and divorce patterns among women in the United States. Results indicate that first marriages are taking place later, more adult women will never marry at all, divorce has likely peaked, remarriage after divorce is becoming less frequent, and among current adult cohorts of women, those representing the first ten years of the baby boom are expected to have the highest incidence of divorce.
