The majority of people (re)partner after family dissolution, and non-resident parents seem to repartner faster than single parents with resident children. I investigate gender differences in the likelihood and timing of repartnering among resident single parents and non-resident parents. I use the Finnish longitudinal registers on income, employment, births, deaths and coresidential partnerships. I employ competing-risk regression proportional sub-hazard models, with repartnering as the event, and transition into non-resident parenthood as a competing risk in the model of repartnering of resident single parents, and transition into residential single parenthood as a competing risk in the model of repartnering of non-resident parents. The results show that among single parents, mothers are slightly more likely to repartner than fathers, whereas fathers are more likely to become non-resident parents. Among non-resident parents, fathers are more likely to repartner, whereas mothers are more likely to become resident single parents.
