Sampling was done by simple random method. The hypotheses test results show that there is a significant and direct relationship between the social exclusion and belief in cultural stereotypes with no remarriage variables. There is also a significant and inverse relationship between the modern attitude to remarriage and self-reliance with barriers to remarriage variables. it can be said that Cultural change and the rise of individualistic values, along with financial independence and self-reliance among women, can not only reduce the tendency to remarry, but can also be accelerating factors for remarriage among women.
