51% of women live outside of traditional marriages

According to a New York Times analysis of census results, in 2005, 51% of women in US said they were living without a spouse, up from 35% in 1950 and 49% in 2000.
There are several factors contributed to this statistical shift - women are marrying later or living with partners more often and for longer periods; women are living longer as widows and, staying single longer after a divorce, sometimes delighting in their newfound freedom.
As for men, a larger share of men are married and living with their spouse - about 53%. Men often remarry quickly than women after a divorce.

Your stats are very true. . . most men get married so fast after a divorce it is shocking. Most women had so much fun the first time around that they are hesitant.
It is interesting because stats don't tell emotions of the mess.
