Would You Marry Your Current Wife?

A newspaper survey asked married men, "If you had it to do again, would you marry your current wife?" and found that the answer was, overwhelmingly, that they would. The Chicago Sun-Times found that 77.1 percent of first-time married men would remarry their spouses, compared with findings in a recent women's magazine poll that said only 50 percent of the women surveyed would make another trip down the aisle with the same man.

The only other question asked in the newspaper poll was: "Why would you marry her again or why not?" Their reasons included: "Why not?" and "Without her, I'd be a bum."
