Arkansas Remarriage Statistics – Leading the Nation in Remarriage

October 31st, 2011 by Ken Clark, LMFT

As reported in Sunday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, we here in Arkansas can add another trophy to our case (we’ve got the only cheese dip festival in the country, lead the nation in mental illness, and finally seem to have a shot at some respect in the college football world). What else could we possibly lead the way in?

Remarriage.

Apparently, we Arkansas like being married so much, that we do it over and over again. In fact, according to the most recent U.S. census, 18% of Arkansans over the age of 15 (yeah, that’s a weird place to cut off the stats), have been married twice. An additional 7.8% have been married three times or more.

While this may sound a little shocking at first glance, I consider this stat good news for Arkansans. It means that for every four adults you meet, at least one has suffered through a marriage that didn’t work. It means that you’re not alone and not the first. Hopefully, knowing that removes some of the shame and stigma from seeking out help, whether it is through marriage counseling or therapy, your church’s pastor, or by simply resolving with your spouse that something needs to change.

If your marriage is struggling, you’re not the only one. Heck, you’re one of the crowd here in Arkansas.

Consider getting help before your marriage becomes a statistic. If we at Chenal Family Therapy PLC don’t seem to be a good fit, there’s plenty of other great therapists and counselors out there. Just pick up the phone… everyone in our field is here to help.
