The question of the factors accounting for the decision to marry exogamously in second marriages is address by an analysis of a sub sample of remarried Jews respondents drawn from the National Jewish Population Survey. While several background factors are found to predict a first intermarriage: sex, denominational family background, religious education, year of marriage and academic attainment, only two are significantly related to exogamic remarriage: academic attainment and year of marriage.
