Childbearing after Remarriage

Abstract

Using June 1985 Current Population Survey data, this study provides a detailed analysis of childbearing that occurs after the second marriage among women who remarry during their reproductive years. For both whites and blacks, approximately half of the women give birth in the second marriage; most of these births occur within 24 months of remarriage. Proportional-hazards models showed that, among whites, childbearing probabilities varied by sociodemographic variables, most notably, age at second marriage and parity at second marriage. Sociodemographic differentials had less effect on the childbearing probabilities of blacks. Possible implications of these findings are discussed.
