Did They Get Re-Hitched?

Don’t assume because a couple got married and divorced that they never married again. My ancestor and her second husband divorced in the 1870s only to married again in the early 1880s and divorce again a year later. The second divorce record references the first marriage and divorce.

An aunt divorced her first husband in the 1860s and took him again as her fourth husband in the late 1870s.

If the remarriage is subsequently later or in a different locality the records may be more detailed than when the couple first married.
