This chapter compares the patterns of and factors associated withremarriageamongsix communities of Eurasia project. Remarriage took place in all of our study populations but its intensity and prevalence varied greatly, more so than first marriage, by socio-cultural and legal conditions. Beyond the difference in the level and timing of remarriage, however, we found in all communities that age and gender asymmetries were embedded in the intricate socio-cultural context, and that the remarriage risk of widows and widowers was highly dependent on their necessities and the availability of support shaped by their socioeconomic statusand the composition and gender of co-residing children.
