(NECN) – A new study from the marriage foundation shows that second marriages are happier and less likely to end in divorce than the first marriages. Marriage Foundation study found that 45-percent of marriages between first-timers are destined for the divorce courts, while just 31-percent of second weddings will end in divorce.

Why the change? Here to offer insight is Cici Van Tine, divorce attorney and partner at Mirick O’Connell.

Study found:
45-percent of first marriages end in divorce
31-percent of second marriages end in divorce

“Let’s be clear that it was just one study,” Van Tine says.

Whether you’re married the first or second time around, Van Tine says age is what plays the biggest role in whether or not your marriage is going to stay intact.
