We were lined up to be cleared for takeoff. After the advancement of the throttles and a short roll; we saw the #2 reverser light come on. The captain rejected well below 80 KTS. After appropriate checklists and taxi back; we elected to try the takeoff again. The same reverser unlock light came on and a reject was accomplished again. The captain elected to go back to the gate to allow maintenance to look at the problem. After the deferral process; we departed without incident to our destination.
