  • It just seems to me that men do, and it's probably because women are more likely to keep the kids..

  • Some do, some don't. I'll never get married again. Learned my lesson the first time.
    I had 2 friends that got married right after their divorces was finalized.
    For most I beleive it's a fear of being alone and wanting that someone to love.

  • Men do... at least from my expirence. I am so not in a hurry to go through all I did when I was married. (I was abused) and now that I have kiddos even the thought of getting hitched with their dad makes me worry.

  • In my experience, men. For two reasons.

    1) I think men more than women emotionally check out of the relationship they're in quite far in advance when it comes to divorce. They often "wait" for the woman to file. As such, they have been emotionally "single" for longer. Also, they often already have their eyes on someone else. I can think of at LEAST 4 guys I know who were divorced and remarried within a year.

    2) Men are sometimes more decisive than women. IE: Once they decide they want something, they go for it.

    3) I think they are a little bit less picky than women AND don't seem to have as much aversion to dating multiple people at the same time, thus speeding up the whole process.

  • Men - because most can't function well outside the parameters of marriage, esp. if they were married a long time.

  • I don't know if I got a divorce I know that I wouldn't even be willing to date until after my kids were grown up, it would be too difficult to find a man I like that I could also trust around my children.
