In brief: Men are Islands
Men have fewer emotional connections and the void left by divorce is more difficult for them to fill.
Men have more difficulty recognizing their emotions and having a spouse who can offer the support and encouragement they need to manage their emotions leads them to seek attachment sooner than most women.

In brief: Varies
After divorce, men mostly find that entering the re-dating scene is a little easier than women.
Women are more emotionally affected, and frequently have children to care for and simply lack the time to find another suitable mate.

Great answer. Totally agree.

Men have fewer emotional connections and the void left by divorce is more difficult for them to fill. Men have more difficulty recognizing their emotions and having a spouse who can offer the support and encouragement they need to manage their emotions leads them to seek attachment sooner than most women. Women are often more emotionally scared by the divorce and are more protective of being hurt again. These things combine to create the trend of men marrying sooner.
