A sample is analysed of those people [in the United Kingdom] who were married at the time of the 1981 Census to a different spouse from the one to whom they were married ten years previously. Comparisons are made between the 1981 and 1971 Census characteristics of the new spouse (and household) and the previous one. Appreciable differences are found between new marriage and the old--and these are compared with the changes in the circumstances of those married to the same spouse in 1971 and 1981. These analyses are practicable because of the use of the OPCS Longitudinal Study.
