Many of us enter into the sanctity of marriage with every intention of being with our significant other forever. But the reality is that roughly half of all marriages end in divorce. That’s even more true for second and third marriages, with third marriages failing 73% of the time. Such statistics beg the question – How many times can someone divorce and remarry in Texas?
While there are certain restrictions on marriage in Texas that we’ll discuss later in this post, there’s no law limiting the number of times you can get married. In fact, no state has a limit — provided that you follow that state’s marriage laws.
So if you recently divorced for the third, fourth, or fifth time and finally found your soulmate, have at it.
What Marriage Restrictions Do Exist in Texas?
There are a few noteworthy restrictions to be aware of when getting married.
- Per the Texas Family Code, you cannot be married in Texas unless you’re at least 18.
- You cannot be legally married to more than one person at a time. This includes a marriage from another state.
- Texas requires a 30-day waiting period between when one marriage ends and another begins.
